Radouan Mriziga

Ayur

Arabic, with German translation

Duration 55 min

Moroccan choreographer Radouan Mriziga presents the second part in his trilogy centred around the knowledge of the Imazighen people of North Africa. Inspired by the ancient Carthegean moon goddess Tanit, “Ayur” is a solo created for Tunisian choreographer and performer Sondos Belhassen. A female guardian of long­lost wisdom, she passes in and out of a porous dome, speaking words by poet Lilia Ben Romdhane and rapper Mahdi Chammen. In a silver­shaded interweaving of dance, text and architecture, she summons the past while searching for a more inclusive future.
