Born 1992 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where she lives and works.
Trained in the performing arts (dance, theatre, music), Sarah Brahim explores in her work the body’s biological and emotional potential. In her video performance Soft Machines / Far Away Engines, Sarah Brahim focuses on breath, which she feels is both the most fragile and the strongest thing that a human being possesses. In choreography that alternates individual and collective movements, she accentuates the psychic and physical vibrations that animate dancers. The audience, invited to contemplate the spectacle and circulate between the eight screens, can in turn experience their own body and its breathing.
