Nacera Belaza

Le Trait


In a piece consisting of two solos and a duet, the choreographer moves along the borderline between traditional and religious Algerian dance, developing from this material a style that is at once minimalist and hypnotic. The result is an infinite number of images, without one merging into the other. Nacera Belaza takes the spectator along on a search “for a space in which time no longer plays any role, and we can touch infinity and, in the end, share something.”
