Leyya Mona Tawil: Destroy//Minneapolis


Check out the latest Soapcast interview with artist and choreographer, Leyya Mona Tawil discussing her project ‘Destroy//Minneapolis’ following the day of the performance. 

‘Destroy// All Places’ is a new ritual for new times. The performance is composed, but untethered. The artists attempt a score imbedded with mechanisms that make its execution increasingly impossible, forcing the material into stages of deterioration and evolution. ‘Destroy// All Places’ began in San Francisco in 2012, and has since visited over 23 cities including Saint Petersburg, Rome, Cairo and Athens.  Over 100 artists have participated in the project internationally. The performance took place in The Soap Factory on August 26th, 2017.
