How does a body react when it is forced to move or is unable to move? Mithkail Alzghair is a choreographer and dancer. He was born in Syria in 1981 and in the show Displacement he investigates his background, his cultural heritage and his legacy in a context of exile.
My research in this creation is centered on the patrimony of the Syrian culture traditions , physicalitys, transe, dynamic and repetitions. I try to understand the sources from which comes their traditional dances, the process of impregnation and contagion they are built, taking in consideration the social and political reality that has contributed on the creation of this heritage: the military heritage, the dictatur heritage, the heritage of authoritarian regimes, the revolution, the war and the displacement. – Mithkail Alzghair
