Heartbeat’s 2019 fundraiser events ‘Dreams’ took place from April 12 to 14 at BIEL. The show revolved around the dreams that anyone can have throughout the major stages of life. They can be sweet and blissful,
surreal, or even nightmarish. More than 5,000 attendees were carried away into this wondrous world of dreams shaped through fantastical lighting, mesmerizing projections, and live performances by 50 singers, musicians
and dancers, among them many doctors and medical students. The staging of Manel Mallat and Kristian Abouanni, the choreography of Lea Chahine, the aerial performances by Sara Aouad and ‘Flying with Helen’, as well as the remarkable presence of Ingrid Naccour, Ralph Asfour and, of course,
that of Anthony Touma and Valerie Abou Chacra, deserve special mention.
