She was the discovery of the Kunstenfestivaldesarts in 2019 with Le Cercle, a stunning creation in which four dancers went into a trance. Today Franco-Algerian choreographer Nacera Belaza returns with L’Onde. This time her gaze is focused on traditional Algerian dances. How can they be updated without losing their singularity and original value? Dance is often neglected when it comes to cultural heritage. Traditional dances are often associated with the musical context in which they exist, but there is less knowledge and research about their specific movement language. Nacera Belaza delves into audiovisual archives and incorporates her findings in this new production. She carefully moulds a sophisticated choreography, bringing this traditional dance material into relation with the concept of « infinity ». The dancers explore the infinity of space and time until they begin to resonate with one another and unleash a wave of excitement and unrest in the auditorium.
