Around the World in a Heartbeat

Heartbeat held its annual fundraiser events from the 22nd to the 24th of April, at BIEL, gathering more than 6,000 attendees. Inspired by the story of a young boy suffering from heart disease, who dreamed of traveling the world, the show was a manifestation of this imaginative global journey. More than 100 singers, dancers, and musicians performed live on stage, with decor, costumes, screen projections and lighting effects adapted to each country. Among this year’s performers were Miss Lebanon 2015 Valerie Abou Chacra and the students from Caracalla Dance School in addition, of course, to the usual choreographies by Lea Chahine, the staging of Manel Mallat and Kris Abouanni, as well as the presence of Anthony Touma.
