The word Haschoema means ‘shame on you’ and is used in the Moroccan community when someone’s behaviour is inappropriate. This single word expresses an understanding, a feeling and a certain tension.
The social control in the Moroccan community and the impact this has on women is the central theme in this performance by Mouna Laroussi. Tension versus release, caged versus freedom and death versus love.
The contemporary dance festival Moving Futures travels through the Netherlands. The festival presents the most prominent young artists of the moment connected to the five Dutch dance houses Dansmakers Amsterdam, Dansateliers, DansBrabant, De Nieuwe Oost and Random Collision. In eight different theaters throughout the country the audience gets a peek behind the scenes of a new generation of contemporary dance makers.
