Redcat Nacera Belaza

Known for her powerfully abstract work, Nacera Belaza draws a path between shadow as well as light, seeking to glimpse the infinite. In L’Onde (The Wave), the French Algerian choreographer immerses herself in the spellbinding notions of Algerian ritualistic dances. With a hypnotic sound narrative and mesmerizing movement that blends tradition and also modernity, the piece features four dancers who explore the body’s capacity for transformation through rigorous and elegantly minimalist choreography.

[Nacera Belaza] explores the boundaries between embodied presence and the ecstatic emptiness toward which dance, and movement, can lead us. – Marian Harss, The New Yorker, Production: Compagnie Nacera Belaza.
