"Walking means continually falling.

Falling means learning to walk."

"To cross a space of 100 metres extremely slowly seems to me one of the most difficult things for a dancer to do. At the same time it is an invitation to perceive our surroundings under changed conditions, to think differently about ourselves and our relationship to others and to pose the question of where the place is for contemporary dance: in the world, in public space, there where one does not expect it." (Taoufiq Izeddiou)

With 100 pas presque Taoufiq Izeddiou, one of the most important representatives of the vibrant North African dance scene, formulates a choreographic challenge to pause in the loud, colourful, lively everyday life, in the centre of the Vienna Museumsquartier. To slow down the movements, the gestures, the gaze and to adopt a different rhythm, one that permits an altered perception of the body, space and time. The international group of dancers that the Marrakesh-based choreographer and dancer has gathered around him are accompanied by a group of local artists who take the audience with them on a journey: from concentrated silence into a dynamic, shared, dance, heard experience of joy.
