The Department of Communication Arts will be launching the first edition of Festival NEXT.

Building on the history of LAU's International University Theatre Festival and continuing its legacy, the Communication Arts Department’s reinvented  Festival NEXT strives to create an interdisciplinary space for innovative, avant-garde, and experimental performing and communicative arts. The festival aims to encompass all strands of communication and connect the department and university with Lebanese and Arab schools, universities, performing artists and communication professionals. Festival NEXT is a visionary fusion and artistic outlet that offers opportunities to students and pre-professionals to work with established artists through workshops, lectures, productions, and performances.

Our guest list is full of incredible artists: storyteller Tamer Habib scriptwriter of “Sahar Ellayaly”, “Tareeqi” and “Grand Hotel”, pianist Amr Salah founder of Iftikasat Band, violinist Saeid Kamal conductor and composer of many of today’s bestselling songs, stage director and social activist Lucien Bourjeili founder of Beirut Acting, Indian dance expert Prathiba Natesan, contemporary dance expert Heather Harrington, actor Hector Aristizábal founder and artistic co-director of ImaginAction, a non-profit theater arts organization based in Los Angeles, theater actress and director  Sahar Assaf, to name a few.
