In this performance, choreographer and dancer Radouan Mriziga uses his own body as a measure for drawing an architectural form, rendering his movements and anatomy into artisanal tools. The work questions the nature of the information a performer can exchange with a viewer, in order to communicate, or confuse the understanding of an expression.
55 (2014) is the first creation by Mriziga.
Radouan Mriziga (b. 1985, Morocco) studied dance in Marrakesh, Tunis, and in 2012, he graduated from P.A.R.T.S, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s Brussels-based dance school. He has collaborated on different productions such as Half Elf Zomeravond by Bart Meuleman at Toneelhuis. He is alo one of the performers in Re:Zeituing, a project of the P.A.R.T.S Foundation and De Munt. Mriziga’s own work includes a group piece 3600 (2016) and a solo work 7 (2017).
