De samenkomst van negen dansers en vijf muzikanten uit Nederland en Marokko maakt FAITH een aangrijpende interculturele voorstelling waarin gezocht wordt naar een gemeenschappelijke basis die essentieel is voor een gezamenlijk geloof in de toekomst. 

Wat is er nog om ons heen wat we niet zien maar alleen kunnen voelen?  

Samen creëren Weizman, Haver en Benghrib een meeslepend mozaïek van verschillende fysieke, culturele en spirituele benaderingen van geloof.  

Het laatste mozaïekstuk ligt bij de toeschouwer.  

Kom. Zie. Hoor. Voel.  

FAITH. 

English

FAITH makes you feel that faith is more than just a personal belief. It is a source of trust, inspiration, and connection. 

FAITH is the latest performance in The Human Odyssey series following Islands of Empathy and Fortune. In which Club Guy & Roni brings together different cultures and worldviews, and shows the deep human connection through an explosion of live music and spectacular choreography. 

Gnawa music, often associated with trance and Lila rituals, guides the performers in a sensitive exploration of faith. To a spiritual world from which we in the West may have drifted away? What else surrounds us that we cannot see but only feel? 

The coming together of nine dancers and five musicians from the Netherlands and Morocco makes FAITH a compelling intercultural performance that searches for a common ground that is essential for a shared belief in the future. 

One of the inspirations for FAITH is Guy Weizman's family's Moroccan roots, which trace back to Casablanca, the same neighborhood where Khalid Benghrib grew up. As peers, they could have met, but life took them on different paths. Now they come together in FAITH. 

The influence of contemporary dance choreographer Khalid Benghrib is evident in the approach to dance as a holistic experience. He learned from dance masters: Colette Milner, Lahcen Zinoun, Karin Weiner, Christine Gérard. With this background, he co-founded 2k_far with Loren Palmer, creating choreographies based on the idea that dance is a way to talk about life. 

His work has been showcased in the Netherlands at the Spring performing arts festival and Dancing on the Edge. The Theaterkrant described his earlier work based on gnawa music with Lila rituals as virtuosic and an exciting tribute to his cultural roots. 

With unparalleled precision and her characteristic tight choreography, Roni Haver connects from spiritual forms within FAITH. 

Together, Weizman, Haver, and Benghrib create a captivating mosaic of different physical, cultural, and spiritual approaches to FAITH. 

The final mosaic piece lies with the audience. 

Come. See. Hear. Feel.
