Corbeaux – Bouchra Ouizguen / Compagnie O
Corbeaux by the Moroccan Bouchra Ouizguen will be descending on the streets and squares of Utrecht like a murder of crows. Out of nowhere, a group of women forms a sculpture of sound and performs a choreography of sighs. Placing Utrecht-born women alongside Moroccan women, young alongside old, women with an immigrant background alongside women without one, Corbeaux is a pure burst of energy that will disappear as swiftly as it appears. An ecstatic and mesmerizing performance in which issues about origins and relations, identity and emancipation and the visibillity of (Muslim) women in society are explored.https://www.springutrecht.nl/program/corbeaux?language=en
