In Corbeaux (crows) the dark silhouettes of women emerge from the shadows, silently they come and then stop. Forming geometric alchemical arrangements,they move repeatedly accompanied by extraordinary piercing cries.
Bouchra Ouizguen is a Moroccan dancer and choreographer based in Marrakech. Corbeaux premiered at the Marrakech Art Biennial 2014.
This performance is co-presented with Shubbak Festival 2017: A Window on Contemporary Arab Culture
Corbeaux is performed by ten women from Morocco and up to ten local performers, brought together by Serpentine Galleries to work with Ouizguen on the performances in London. The UK premiere takes place cross-site at Serpentine Galleries on 14 July and at Tate Modern on 15 July.
