Video documentation of NRLA (National Review of Live Art) 2008, Tramway, Glasgow, 6-10 Feb 2008.Mroué reconstructs the radical heterogeneous landscape of Lebanon, destroyed by crises and wars, with the aid of countless anonymous and personal documents, videos, photos, newspaper clipping and eyewitness reposts, that he pieces together to create a complex system of meandering narrations. In so doing, he questions the veracity and cogency of the archive documents as much as he negotiates the validity of the reconstruction of "reality" (T2, Tramway, Glasgow, 10 Feb 2008, 20.15 - 21.30).
