Nacera Belaza’s note on background / process of the new creation: The work will seed from a duo Le Cercle which was part of the triptych Le Trait presented at the Festival d’Avignon in 2012. Le Cercle fits into a research which started a few years ago in Algeria, focusing on the dialogue between the rituals, the sacred dances and my own writing. The numerous ritual dances I could observe strengthened my idea that, at all times, art has made ancestral rituals communicate with a certain premonition of the future. That is why I wish to find a “sacred memory in the body” through this research.
