“On the roads of Arabia” is one of the most spectacular events of Galerie Itinerrance . Performed by more than 80 international artists – and directly inspired by its latest exhibition “Roads of Arabia” – the show invites the public to a sensory journey highlighting the rich living artistic heritage of these ancient roads.
Enjoy a journey through the dance, music and poetry of the Arabian Peninsula, Africa, the Mediterranean, India, Indonesia and China, while admiring the extraordinary calligraphic performance by the street artist Koom, magically revealed during the show.
Commissioned by the Louvre Abu Dhabi in response to the Arabian Roads exhibition, each sequence symbolizes human harmony, the spirit of sharing, dialogue and a common artistic adventure. Thanks to the diversity of cultures represented, this creation provides a living illustration of the universal values that unite us.
