Revolution or illusion – the ambivalence between these two concepts, which Moroccan choreographer Taoufiq Izeddiou has fused together in the title of his piece, is the focus of his new work. He has the current political developments in North Africa in mind, which he stages in RÊV’ILLUSION as research on physical states of consciousness. Four dancers, including the choreographer himself, transform the stage into a symbolic space, in which the conflicts, issues and the ambivalent nature of collective processes of change and individual locations are manifested. ‘Has the time come for a dance of the masses? Or for a kind of individualism that has so far been oppressed by the movement of the masses?’ asks Izeddiou, whose path to choreography went via boxing and architecture before he became one of the most important figures on the North African dance scene and the founder of Morocco’s first contemporary dance company. With RÊV’ILLUSION he presents a statement on the Arab Spring, that is as poetic as it is seriously intentioned.
