A rare and exciting chance to experience dancer and choreographer Nacera Belaza's work.
You are an envelope which contains space. Not just a space, but an empty space. First you try to receive all the sounds when freeing your head and the rest of your body. When you learn to receive, you will learn to become the embodiment of every sound that you hear.
Belaza enters dance as a self-taught interpreter, developing choreography originating in an inner progress — a sensitive awareness of the body, space and the emptiness inside herself.
For over 30 years Belaza's work has spanned dance, performance, film and written articles. Recognized worldwide, she has been invited to major theatre venues and festivals, receiving numerous awards including Chevalier de l'ordre des Arts et des Lettres (2015) from the French Ministry of Culture.
