A refreshing collection of fifteen young acrobats, dancers, freestylers, breakdancers and taekwondo specialists depict the fantasy world of renowned visual artist Hassan Hajjaj. Propelled by uplifting beats, a wonderful contagious energy arises on stage. Expect dancing, acrobatic feats, motorbikes, dazzling sets, belly-slides, human pyramids and more finger-licking goodness. FIQ! Yes please!
In the performance FIQ! you are introduced to the universe of visual artist and top photographer Hassan Hajjaj, known as the Andy Warhol of Marrakech. His sharp eye, fine sense of pop culture and criticism of the frenzy of the modern world come together in FIQ! together. You can taste the love for Morocco’s rich history, but also the modern street culture and their quirky take on contemporary circus and dance.
In the capable hands of director Maroussia Diaz Verbèke, you are treated to a bombastic performance that is not only eye-catching but also food for thought.
