More than 50 artists representing 14 countries gathered in Kuwait this month for the annual Reuse festival, a live performance event founded nearly a decade ago.

The brainchild of Kuwaiti recording artist Zahed Sultan, the eclectic event was built around an ethos of sustainability, with several sound stages built from recycled material. One Dutch performer used more than 5,000 cassette tapes to construct a fluorescent green installation. 

"With this edition of Reuse," Sultan said, "I aspired to create a space for artists and audiences to interact using digital media, with an emphasis on light, sound and physical performance."
