Rachid Ouramdane is at the forefront of dance innovation, extending definitions of performer and choreographer and blurring the line between dance and documentary. In a haunting duet, two dancers perform lonely, intensely physical solos. Through hypnotic, whirling gestures, each woman’s body paints a raw, captivating self-portrait.
Co-presented with French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)’s Crossing the Line Festival and CCN2 – Centre chorégraphique national de Grenoble. Part of BRIDGING, an initiative co-developed and supported by the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations.
