The Company

Al-Sarab Dance Company (ASDC) is located in the oldest city in the world: Byblos, Lebanon. Just like its name states, Al-Sarab – Arabic for Mirage – aims to transport its audience in to a world where everything is possible; where everyone can dance, including its audience. ASDC is known for its audience-interactive performances, as well as its multi-disciplinary collaborations with artists from around the world. The company has been hard at work since 1991 when it was first established by its founder and artistic director Nadra Assaf (PhD). Since then, it has grown to showcase the artistic excellence and innovative choreography of all its members. Through the many creations in its repertoire, both nationally and internationally, the company aims to inspire young dancers, create connections with the community, and push forth the appreciation of dance and arts in the Middle East and beyond.
