„In all my pieces, I aspire for unity, a relationship with everything, with the other, with letting go …“ - Nacera Belaza
Franco-Algerian choreographer Nacera Belaza explores the ancient rituals that have always influenced her work. Being and infinity, the spinning of space and time, and the origin of self-transcendence come to haunt this unique dance that awakens the fundamental pulse and moving images from ancient times. Nacera Belaza’s dance is more of an inner journey than a pictorial illustration. Abstract and carnal, powerful and diaphanous, organic and open to the infinite, she starts from the void to project herself into the unknown, in search of a breath or a pulse that is as free as it is regenerative and revitalizing. Her choreographic work organises a lively dialogue between Algerian and European cultures, between spirituality and image, movement and imagination.
For this creation, she was inspired by audiovisual archives of traditional rituals. While formally transcending these rituals, she retains a state, a tension, a way of being in the world consisting of inner peace, of letting go and welcoming the infinite within oneself – and animated by a pulsating rhythm that links the soul to space and time. Carried by a soundtrack that blends tradition and modernity, up to the point of confusion, this piece for five dancers explores once again the power of the transformation of the body through imagination, through the force of consciousness and spirit, and invites you to be part of a new serenity.
