Bouchra Ouizguen: corbeaux

November 20, 2015 4:00 pm

In corbeaux Ouizguen returns to themes of origin and sensation; the connection to the mother, earth, and love. Corbeaux is an expression of femininity as it breathes life into a female Gregorian chant. Dressed in black with white headscarves, a troupe of silhouettes embarks on a performance that combines repetitions and variations of vocal ranges and motions to draw in the audience only to leave them at the end with nothing but themselves.
