Mriziga, Radouan

In 55 Moroccan choreographer Radouan Mriziga subtly plays with the perspective and the expectations of the audience. Constructed around the number five and exploring the body’s relationship to space through simple gestures, he gradually begins to create an intricate floor pattern with chalk, tape and his body. Balanced delicately between the aesthetic influences of minimalism and Oriental ornamentation, the emerging forms appear like an unavoidable consequence of the connection between his physicality and the space.

55 is the first creation by Radouan Mriziga and first part of a dance trilogy around the power of numbers, approaching dance from an architectural perspective and using body as central instrument for the performance.
