Radouan Mriziga

Inspired by his Amazigh heritage, choreographer Radouan Mriziga orchestrates a radiant work in which eight performers revive our collective memory of ancient wisdom.


The Continuum of Time  

In Libya, Marrakech-born choreographer Radouan Mriziga orchestrates a radiant work that turns history inside out and restores our collective memory. The stage becomes a temporal continuum where ancient wisdom is revived and stories once forgotten, repressed, or excluded are reborn at last under the light of the stars.

Wisdom is an act of sharing in Libya: it is created through encounters and collaborations between different kinds of knowledge. Via the bodies and voices of eight astounding performers, the vast matriarchal heritage of the Mediterranean Imazighen people becomes the starting point for combining diverse practices and traditions on stage—hip-hop, poetry, song, contemporary dance, rhythmic percussion. In this human fresco that gives life and movement to the act of transmission, dancing leads to knowing and mutual understanding. Dancing together takes us beyond time and changes the world.
