La Vie Attend transposes Hobbes’ social contract theory, and thus to the contract into which the contemporary audience member and the interpreter enter together, hope and fear in hand. GLORIOUS FRAGILITY - a dazzling work displaying shared "friendship, laughter and complicity, with uncertainties and exhaustion, using simplicity and poetry to treat dance in the most human way possible." Kismet: Opposing Destiny is a ritual that explores the choice between accepting fate or creating destiny.
La Vie Attend...opens the season with panache. From power, to fear, through waiting & silence, the viewer is lulled into a succession of choreographic, theatrical and architectural paintings, alternating between laughter, interrogation and hypnosis.

Zarif managed to take even those inexpert in his cultural heritage on a journey of discovery; spiritual and transcendent.
