Dance, imagery, lyrics and sound converge in an autobiographical performance

Tunisian performer and dancer Mohamed Toukabri made a name for himself dancing with artists like Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Jan Lauwers. ‘The Upside Down Man (The son of the road)’ is his first self-made performance.

Toukabri moves back and forth, switching between past and present, between two countries and between different forms of art. He explores the concept of an in between space, a philosophical zone he finds himself in. This space is located between his background as a Westernised Muslim from Tunis and the world citizenship that European contemporary dance offers him. Dance, imagery, lyrics and sound converge in an autobiographical performance. This personal tale serves as a means of discussing identity in our current society.

“Zoals Toukabri zijn er geen twee. Sierlijke balletlijnen vloeien over in acrobatisch vloerwerk. Spannend hoe hij breakdance de gewichtloosheid van ballet geeft.”

Charlotte De Somviele, De Standaard
