Spanning the first three years of Lebanon’s economic crisis, from October 2019 to October 2022, Body Tectonic is an experiment in news poetry, exploring what it’s like bodily when the ground shifts daily beneath your feet. Lebanon today is a country in freefall, with devastating currency inflation, political instability, and social tension and unrest. The structural nature of the catastrophe makes it both more bizarre and more normal. Exploring instability, longing, and the paradox of hope, Body Tectonic attends to what happens to the body — of a country, of a people — in conditions of continual emergency.
