Event Details

Performing the Collective
Bridging Symposium

Launched by FIAF and the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations during Crossing The Line 2016, BRIDGING explores issues of equity across cultures. Involving performances, a residency, and discussions, this year’s program centers on the practice of dancer, choreographer, curator, and activist Syhem Belkhodja, who uses movement to empower youth and young adults, combat violence, and effect social change in Tunisia. It also features iconic performances by choreographer Nacera Belaza.

This program stages a dialogue between the North African and African-American social and artistic contexts, by way of conversations between choreographers and cultural theorists focusing on youth, community, and diaspora. The symposium is curated by Omar Berrada.

3pm – Community and Pedagogy
A conversation between Meryem Jazouli (choreographer and founder of Espace Darja, Casablanca) and Paloma McGregor (choreographer and co-founder of Angela’s Pulse, New York), moderated by Omar Berrada.
