Event Details

October 10–11 | 8 PM

Pittsburgh Premiere

In this new piece, Casablanca-based choreographer and dancer Hind Benali explores her personal past and African roots while addressing the culture, history, and gender politics of Morocco. Rich in images and movement, Benali’s new work reflects the complexities of Moroccan life.

Identity/Identité is created and performed in collaboration with Franco-Moroccan hip hop dancer, Soufiane Karim. The piece’s soundscape is composed of live and recorded music by multi-instrumentalist Mohcine Imrharn, interwoven with found sounds. Strikingly lyrical calligraphy by artist Yacine Fadhil will be projected on the stage and dancers. Additional video imagery by Benali documents shrines, stories of elderly Moroccans about their youth, and sounds of the traditional markets to conjure and share environments that have formed her life and those of her forbearers.

Part of KST’s World Stage international performance series.

The presentation of Fleur D’Orange is part of Center Stage, an initiative of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, produced by the New England Foundation for the Arts in cooperation with the U.S. Regional Arts Organizations, with additional support from the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation and the Asian Cultural Council. General Management for Center Stage is provided by Lisa Booth Management, Inc.
