Radouan Mriziga - 55

mon 07/07/2014 > sat 19/07/2014

Basic tasks
What information does the artist wish to share with the spectator? Do you provide a lot or a little information? And what are you trying to achieve by this: do you want to convey the meaning of the work or in fact keep it vague? In his solo, the choreographer and dancer Radouan Mriziga constantly plays with the perspective and expectations of the spectator. He sets himself several basic tasks. By carrying them out, he creates ‘forms’, but he also puts himself in an increasingly complex situation. 

"Throughout this process, I am seeking to perform a functional body on stage and the quality of its executional engagement.
To concretize this research I stipulated two major lines: constructing visual forms while being a merely executive body.
setting and coordinating several elemental tasks that result in certain complexity in the body.
The concurrent line in this research is dealing with the narrativity of chosen situations by emphasizing, increasing or reducing its volume."

55 is the first creation by the Moroccan choreographer and dancer Radouan Mriziga. He studied dance in Morocco, Tunisia and France, and also at PARTS. Since 2008 he has lived and worked in Brussels. He has also danced in Half elf zomeravond (Bart Meuleman, Toneelhuis) and Re: Zeitung (Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker). He is artist in residence at the Moussem ‘nomadic’ arts centre, which in its activities reflects on the impact of globalization caused by old and new migratory flows.
55 is a work on quantity and nature of the information we exchange with a viewer, in order to communicate, punctuate or confuse the understanding of a situation.
