Can choreography close the gaps in our historical memory? ›AKAL‹ (Tamazight for Earth) is the third piece of a trilogy by Radouan Mriziga, in which he draws inspiration from the epistemologies of the Imazighen, the indigenous people of North Africa. Their oral culture was ignored for centuries, but for Mriziga it contains the seed of a new future. Each piece of the trilogy is focused on mythological female figures who embody and protect the Amazigh culture. In ›AKAL‹ the muse is the ancient Egyptian goddess Neith, associated with birth and death, who guides the souls of the dead to the underworld. In this solo, Mriziga celebrates Neith’s strength in collaboration with the Rwandan choreographer, dancer and singer Dorothée Munyaneza. Rituals, traditional dances, architecture, storytelling, song, poetry, rap: in ›AKAL‹, everything comes together in an intimate choreographic space in which a fresh look at a suppressed past makes us dream of a more inclusive future.
