Contemporary Dance Festival in Marrakech

The International Contemporary Dance Festival "On marche" is back from March 18th to 24th

Choreography, shows, conferences, screenings will be on show. This festival takes place in public and cultural spaces emblematic of the city, the objective being to interest as many people as possible in this art which is developing in Morocco. The festival will also welcome many foreign professionals.

The festival is an opportunity for Moroccan dancers to rub shoulders with directors and critics and possibly win a contract. Gathering this year more than 15 artistic projects, the edition's programmed shows will be resolutely turned towards the contemporary creation and of the most multiple forms.

"These are important urban punctuations enhanced by projects appropriate to the urban territory, and in dialogue with its history and its contemporaneity," says Taoufiq Izeddiou, founder of the festival which is in its 13th edition.

Over the years "On marche" has remained faithful to its basic essence, a nomad festival operating in several places to strengthen the Moroccan cultural landscape and contribute to its dynamics. The festival that will continue to build "synergies" with partners such as ESAV or the IFM and other international partners.

With its partners, the founder of the dance festival hopes to set up a future school of choreographic arts, "Nafass", which has been in discussion since the past edition. Nafass would be a permanent school in Marrakech and is planning an opening in the autumn of 2018.
