While dancing, power structures are exposed and stereotypes broken.
This performance is part of ExploreZ on Tour. In his first dancesolo HISTORIA, choreographer and dancer Issam Zemmouri combines contemporary dance, physical expression and visual poetry. Historia is a journey that stretches across the Mediterranean Sea and encounters different cultures, languages and civilizations. We are taken along in a personal quest for liberation. Can I be myself? is the question the traveller finds asking himself over and over again, whilst being confronted with the obstacles and rules of the game, which are always determined by others. Historia premiered during the Amsterdam Fringe Festival of 2021.
Issam Zemmouri is a choreographer and dancer with a unique style: a combination of contemporary dance, physical expression and strong visual elements. With his unique physical and visual language, he knows how to unexpectedly transform the space and the character into new experiences. He is exceptional in working with objects, which challenge the viewer’s perception time and time again. Through dance he addresses sensitive subjects, where words fall short. With his dance training in Morocco and France, he belongs to the youngest generation of authentic choreographers and dancers with their own artistic language.
