The Maid

“The Maid”

Choreographic performance solo : Ahlam Ettamri

Revisiting my ancestors’  history; that of a Bedouin family who suffered a kidnapping, in an Arab slavery network at the beginning of the 20th century. It is an identity quest expressing and choreographing in a poetic way the tensions that haunt the women of my family. What choreography can do to exorcise a phenomenon that continues to exist in our days in various cultures around the globe. Ahlam Ettamri

It was presented during Plumes d’Afrique at the National Chreographic Center of Tours the 9th of novembre 2012.
