Recording: 2023-08-17 , Sophiensæle (Video © Bickmann & Kolde GbR)

Radouan Mriziga


Tanz im August | Sophiensæle

Production Details / Press Releases

The culture of the Amazigh people in North Africa is passed down from generation to generation by way of stories, dance, and song. “Libya” celebrates this tradition and attempts to find a different way of writing history. The performers tackle this cultural heritage on an open stage on which lines of connection are made visible on a collective journey of exploration. The sounds of tarab, ahwach and tuareg music are combined with rap and other performative elements. A form of non-imperial history emerges, which can be perceived as a continualflow of knowledge, experience, and movement.
