Hurriyah, meaning freedom in Arabic, is a calligraphic animation. It all begins with a dot. Hurriyah – in her personified form – sets out on a transforming journey. All is initially calm but, as a storm unfolds, she blossoms into a sail, capturing the full might of the prevailing gales. As the tempest subsides, Hurriyah unravels back and eventually returns to her initial state – a dot. Her end marks the start of a new beginning. It is set to music by Nitin Sawhney and dance by Salah El Brogy, as part of the Nour Festival 2013.
