Joumana Mourad


Joumana Mourad: Artistic Director/ sensographer

Joumana Mourad embraces digital technologies in dance, creating performances presented on three different yet interlinked stages (physical, digital-stream and digital-social) to create meaningful worldwide conversations, before, during and after a performance.

From working with 45 performers in Taiwan to engaging audiences across four continents with its live-stream, IJAD embraces unconventional spaces and new formats.

“Mourad has since gone on to be one of the most intriguing figures on the British dance scene, challenges the very nature of what you think a dance performance will look like.”
– Keith Watson, Metro

“Her [Mourad’s] multimedia ideas are all encompassing, engaging all our senses and demanding 100 per cent of our attention at all times.”
– Dance Expression Magazine
