LAU honors Nidal Ashqar


During the NEXT 2019 festival organized annually at its campus, the Lebanese American University (LAU) honored yesterday the grande dame of theatre Nidal Ashqar in recognition of her cultural contributions. On the occasion, LAU president, Joseph Jabra, sketched the biography of Ashqar who represents a cultural model par excellence, pointing to her considerable impact on the lives of others in the immediate and distant surroundings. Jabra also mentioned Ashqar’s Masrah al Madina feat which signaled a landmark in the modern history of Beirut and Lebanon at large by serving as a lever for the Lebanese theatre. LAU, Jabra concluded, is privileged to honor Ashqar, the woman who contributed on a grand scale to inspiring and elevating art, culture and theatre in Lebanon and the Arab world.
