Taoufiq Izeddiou

En Alerte

Is it possible to conciliate dance and spirituality? Taoufiq Izeddiou responds masterfully to this question, using dance to evoke the spiritual. The Moroccan choreographer interrogates the extraordinary force that allows some to access an age-old form of knowledge, while reading others to plunge into blind violence in the name of an unattainable ideal.
