As the weather improves, recreational activities in Qatar appear to be getting far more creative. Here are a few suggestions of things to do today and tomorrow.
- Doha is going to see its first Zombie Run today. The event, which will be held at Katara, is being hosted by the Doha Tribeca Film Festival ahead of the release of Qatar’s first horror film Lockdown: Red Moon Escape. Registration for the capture the flag type run goes from 1pm to 3pm, and participants can be dressed normally (as humans) or as zombies. It looks like registration for those coming as zombies is closed, but you can still sign up to be a human runner here.
- If you’re at Katara anyway, consider visiting new exhibition Intangible Brides by Japanese photographer Kimiko Yoshida. The works on display feature her interpretation of Middle Eastern, Arab and North African garb, all showcased on “an absent character.” You’ll find the exhibition in Gallery 1, Building 19 and it should be open from after jumaa to 10pm today and 10am to 10pm on Saturday.
- Hope, a collection of works by renowned photographer Reza, is now open on the Corniche near Sheraton Park. The exhibition, which relate to the upcoming WISE education conference, features some 80 photos taken over 30 years from numerous countries, including Afghanistan and Algeria. Reza explains: “Each image documents a significant life-moment, an encounter with women, men and children whose expressions and gestures speak for the whole of humanity.” If you don’t get a chance to go this weekend, don’t worry – the exhibition will be on display until Dec. 15.
What are your plans?
