“Uniting structure with sentiment, Mr. Mriziga is creating striking patterns of his own.” —New York Times
International performance returns to the Walker stage. Presented in an intimate, onstage setting and incorporating songs, rituals, traditional dances, storytelling, poems, and collective memories, Akal is inspired by the ancient Mediterranean mythologies of the Indigenous Imazighen people of North Africa. Moroccan-born, Brussels-based choreographer Radouan Mriziga’s conception is beautifully realized by Rwandan dancer/singer Dorothée Munyaneza in a solo performance that brings to life the goddess Neith, one of the oldest and most powerful deities of ancient Egypt. Akal (the Tamazight word for Earth), offers a fresh look at a suppressed past that makes us dream of a more inclusive future.
Intimate onstage seating with limited capacity.
Assistive-listening devices are available at the Main Lobby desk. Please contact us at least two weeks in advance for ASL interpretation, audio description, and CART captioning to allow time to schedule these services.
