Bouchra Ouizguen

Bouchra Ouizguen, who has been inspiring HAU audience since 2013, returns with a new HAU co-production as part of the festival “Berlin bleibt! #4”. She is working once again with female artists, based on a shared wealth of experience, traditional singing techniques and the music repertoire of the Marrakesh region.

“Éléphant” is a fragmented collective body that is traversed by the movements of the performers, singers and musicians who lend their voices and identities. This body that oscillates between strength and fragility, evokes the ephemeral nature of the present. Swinging between splendour and simplicity, differences and commonality are magnified, revealing the precious and subversive character in the individual and in the collective.

In this choreography of voices Ouizguen, who is one of the main figures of contemporary dance in Morocco, looks into the ancient roots of her home country and develops a dance that fills the present with new life and hope.
