Aleef, Arabic, means I am turning and at the same time evokes aleph, the first letter of the alphabet. Taoufiq Izzediou thereby marks the moment of initiation and the uncertainty with which the ever new search for the self and the writing of one’s own history is always associated. “I am angry. My energy is crazy, clever, slow, controlled, tired, exhausted, restrained . . . Am I Moroccan? An African? From the Mediterranean area? An Arab? Or a citizen of the world?”, he describes the question of his own identity as an open wound. And he sketches out a solo that also reflects the struggle that is linked to a life in contemporary dance in Morocco; with the decision for an art form that in its inherent search for an “other” body confronts us with one’s own and official national and family history, between tradition and modernity. Together with the traditional Gwana musician Maâlem Adil Amimi and the sound designer Guy Raynaud, an atmospherically dense journey through memory develops in the attempt to be able to say ,I’ again.
