Demoreel Snapshots

The beauty of the emirate’s beloved Al Noor Mosque is showcased in this show reflecting the position of art as a tool of communication and Islamic art through time and history as an elemental language of the universe. Act 1 blends geometry, architecture, physics, mathematics, and philosophy into an astonishing show echoing the influence of art on the world – a Language of the Universe. Act 2 leads in The Human Factor, intertwining plants and abstract curvilinear motifs delineating the monument with the patterns and colours from the earliest Islamic period. The show comes to a reflective finale with Beauty by Contrast, a modern and digital interpretation of the universal language, dramatically contrasting shapes with previous harmonious sequences, seeking to explore the position of art in the future.
