Performance feature 2013:
  • Trance, performed by Rochdi Belgasmi (Tunisia)
    • Trance is a journey inside the body and through its cry, and endless oscillation of a tortured but excited flesh pierced by a Berber music. The very early complaints of a woman come out as the iridescent body of the choreographer walks towards us… Rochdi seems to have been born to dance, his sharpened muscles had already started to squirt out of the skins and had started to shape some movements insinuating an inevitable irruption. All the lights are then focused on a body eager for the Trance, titillated, provoked, cherished and abused by a music coming from the depths of Time. Uncountable feminine voices join the artist while he breaks through senses and sounds, an interminable lament puts rhythm into the vertiginous dance which one also hears the panting, the cries and the slapping of hands whipping this inhabited flesh… Trance is the visual expression of a desire of liberties, a violent exorcism, a skin burned under the suns origins….
