By Emad Jano Hemede. Dance choreographed by Kim Schroeder and performed by Ignite: A Company of Dancing Artist.

“The Day Before Tomorrow” is an interactive work of art created by Syrian visual artist Emad Hemede known as Jano. The work has two performance pieces, both occur in the museum’s outdoor labyrinth. In the first, the artist showcases the process of creation building a landscape using flour symbolizing life in its fragile form. In the second, the audience witnesses its destruction via a dance performance that illustrates how the peace and beauty that previously existed in Syria is now shattered by conflict.
