Performance in Shana Lutker's The Sleeping Poet and The Jongleuse, as reviewed in ArtNews.

Performer and sound artist in Patricia Lennox-Boyd's film on exhaustion, produced by EMPAC. 

"The shoot, which took place over five days last spring, used a system of four moving cameras in the EMPAC Theater—two bird’s-eye views moving up and down on vertical axes, and two horizontal tracking shots—to surround and relentlessly document the space in which performer Nour Mobarak took up an extended and repetitive series of gestures. Within this matrix of cameras—running in constant motion according to pre-programmed commands—the system inevitably documents itself, each camera puncturing the frame of the others and capturing the static lighting rigs and technical equipment used on-set. Mobarak’s body, like all the objects represented, is passed by again and again and thereby can never become a fixed subject of the film since the system is not programmed to privilege her presence any more than the adjacent objects." - from EMPAC event press release.

Co-starred in Mati Diop's film Snow Canon, which opened at the 2011 Venice Film Festival. Watch the film here. Press conference linked here
