Noelle Ghoussaini, 2011
Noelle Ghoussaini creates expansive and genre-defying theatrical experience exploring the politics and spirit of liberation. She brings to light to the divine feminine and the resilient spirit of womxn living under patriarchal norms. She tells nuanced stories about the unexposed beauty and complexity of spiritual and social landscapes in the Middle East. She creates theatre and ritual experiences in public space, as a way to examine and reimagine our society within political, cultural and mystical contexts. Her work is grounded, yet offers visions of the surreal, sacred and abstract. She recently created “shapelight” – a organization dedicated to ritual, installation and connection through collective creative ceremonies. Noelle is dedicated to equity, connection and creativity for all beings. MA – Arts Politics, Tisch, NYU.
