Madame Plaza is the name of one of the oldest cabarets in Marrakesh. In the eponymous work, the Moroccan choreographer Bouchra Ouizguen works with three women who appear at celebrations, weddings and in nightclubs. These ›Shikhat‹ have a contradictory social position in present-day Morocco. They are admired and sought after for their powerful voices and sensual movements, and at the same time they meet with rejection because with the exhibition of their intimate life they overstep the boundaries of what is socially accepted.
Bouchra Ouizguen – trained in oriental and European contemporary dance – is one of the most important representatives of the vital and aspiring dance scenes in North Africa. Together with the Aïta singers from her homeland, in Madame Plaza she has created a surprising encounter between longing, hopes and situations: a choreography of the individual search for freedom, which through the voices and bodies of the women opens up far beyond the boundaries of countries and cultures.
