We will be holding a workshop led by Kyoto Experiment 2019 artist, Bouchra Ouizguen. Ouizguen is a dancer and choreographer based in Marrakech, Morocco who has participated in numerous international festivals. In this workshop Ouizguen will share with participants the local dance and rhythm of her own background and of her birthplace Ouarzazate. The workshop is open to anyone, regardless of experience. Please feel free to join us.
Bouchra Ouizguen (b. 1980) is a Moroccan dancer and choreographer. Born in Ouarzazate, she currently lives and works in Marrakech where she has been committed to developing the local dance scene since 1998. Self-taught and an oriental dancer from the age of sixteen, she created her first experimental pieces such as Ana Ounta or Mort et moi based on her interest in film, literature and music. She co-founded the Anania association in 2002 and worked with the likes of Mathilde Monnier, Bernardo Montet, Boris Charmatz and Alain Buffard before founding her own company, O, in 2010. Her interest in societal issues, visual arts and popular arts in her country inform her work, which encompasses sound, performance and video. In 2010 she received the New Choreographic Talent award from France’s Society of Dramatic Authors and Composers (SACD).
