55, as in the 55 minutes of an architectural performance based on the number five and measured to the scale of the dancer’s body. 55 is a perfect example of how this dancer and choreographer from Marrakesh, trained at P.A.R.T.S., has transformed his hybrid influences into a unique and personal dance vocabulary, situated between sobriety and sensuality, conceptualization and physicality, structure and sentiment.
Radouan Mriziga uses his own body to create a pattern on the floor that is a materialization of the relationship between anatomy and space. Here the rationalist conceptualization that less is more is not incompatible with the esthetic and emotional delight associated with ornamentation.
