Radouan Mriziga: Akal

“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.
