    DJ NaNa believes that the art of Turntablism is a science. The same precision and dedication scientists put into research and experiments, is what NaNa is known for putting into his own artform. His influences range from the common (Wu Tang Clan, Outkast, A Tribe Called Quest, Jay-Z). to the not so obvious (Zamfir, Portishead, Lamb, Fleetwood Mac), and everything else in between. A true music connoisseur, his knowledge of diverse genres of music is almost as impressive as his knack for combining them.

    Pleasure Dome presents Close To Here – Saudade: A Performance by Roy Dib & Symposium with Laura U. Marks & Nahed Mansour

    Close to Here – Saudade , is a story of war told through the rituals of funerals where every time a young man decides to go to war, his family and friends conduct a rehearsal for his funeral before he leaves. The work explores this concept in all aspects: social, psychological, political, anthropological, gendered and historical. The context is an unnamed city where citizens have a new orientation and a new language made from the logic of chaos and the impulse to have control over the city.

    Performance 12pm
    Complimentary Lunch 1pm
    Symposium 2pm
    Reception 5pm
