Step inside an immersive art exhibition

Artist Paul Marlier collaborates with dancer Jeanne Morel to bring his digital and immersive artworks to Jeddah’s home for the arts. From the biometrics data of the dancer, captured during her movement in extreme environments and microgravity, the artist generates pieces in which each spectator is able to interpret his own lightness. Accompanying the exhibition is ATL4S, a performance and live demonstration by the artists, on Friday April 26 and Saturday April 27.

Have pizza at Il Postino Pizzeria

Gordon Ramsay has always maintained that having too much on a menu is a bad idea. At Il Postino, the only items on the menu you’ll find are good wholesome pizzas, drinks and desserts. Served fresh out of a woodfire oven, the base of the pizzas are thin and their topping combinations are spot on.
