Contemporary dance in Meknes

Moroccans do not get to many opportunities to see contemporary dance as too few dance productions tour Morocco. Tomorrow night, June 25, the National Ballet of Lorraine will perform in Meknes.

Fourteen dancers will present a contemporary work, Etcetera. It has been choreographed by Andrea Sitter, who has re-interpreted works from choreographers such as Pina Bausch, Merce Cunningham and Michael Jackson.

The National Ballet of Lorraine is one of the premier French dance companies in the creation of new repertoire. Since they began in 1978, they have developed a large number of pieces which show an extraordinary range of richness and diversity. They have already appeared in Marrakesh and Casablanca and this will be the finale of their Moroccan tour.


The National Ballet of Lorraine performs on Saturday June 25 at 8pm at the
théâtre de l'Institut Français de Meknès at
Place Farhat Hached, Meknès. Ph: 0555 52 40 71.
