Tania arrived in London in 2005 to do the Full Time Professional Programme at the School of Physical Theatre. Tania’s training relays mostly in her home country Lebanon, Beirut. She did a Diploma in Drama Studies in the University of Lebanon.


Her background also includes Meyerhold Technique (Bio-Mechanics) studies, contemporary dance, and a number of theatre and dance shows. She’s performed in the BID, Beirut International Dance Platform; International Youth Festival in Beirut and Turkey; Carthage Festival Tunis and Lakoon Festival in Hamburg, Germany; 2003 and 2004 respectively.

Tania El Khoury is now doing the TheatreWorks Post-Graduate Programme at the School of Physical Theatre, where she’s developing No Place Called Home. Tania based this project on her childhood and teenage memories of her life in Lebanon: “These experiences do not seem suited to be written or performed for the stage of conventional theatre. They rather draw me to half destroyed or abandoned spaces like that deserted hospital where I spent much of my childhood hiding and taking refuge."

Tania’s theatrical approach to her memories goes beyond the comfort of watching them on a stage. It’s rather a promenade, where the audience will discover static and 3 dimensional images. These ones will bring the audience closer to the performers and in interaction create virtual and illusionary images.
