We are currently looking for performers for Bouchra Ouizguen's Corbeaux, part of the official program for Kyoto Experiment 2019.
Bouchra Ouizguen will hold a workshop style audition where participants will be invited to explore Bouchra’s creation process for Corbeaux. At the end of the audition (July 9th), selected participants will be invited to continue the process with Bouchra and perform with the Moroccan artists of her company in October.
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). A new iteration of Bouchra's Corbeaux will be presented at Kyoto Experiment 2019. Moroccan dancers from Bouchra's company will be joined by local dancers selected through auditions held in Kyoto in July and perform the piece at outdoor venues around Kyoto city.
