Information on the activity

October 10, 2019 to October 13, 2019

Questions about migrants and borders feed current debates around the world. Conceived for five young dancers from Marrakech, this work examines the notion of checkpoints, those that are visible as well as barriers within the body itself. Enveloped in a sound mix drawn from both traditional and contemporary Moroccan sources, this fervent quintet strives to make the space their own or create one for themselves if given no other choice. In a society with such tight control over individuals, what is left of intimacy?
