Whether physical or psychicological, real or symbolic, whether mediated or direct, violence triggers a reaction in our bodies. Violence makes our body vibrate from our very pores to the depths of our soul. Sometimes it freezes. At others it ignites.

How does violence push us to act to change the world? In Today Is a Beautiful Day, choreographer Youness Aboulakoul asks this question to explore what violence means to the body and what kind of resonance it provokes. Violence is handled with subtlety and never directly displayed in this visually strong dance performance.



Dancer Youness Aboulakoul lives and works in Paris. Youness is an associated artist and member of Khalid Benghrib’s Cie 2k_far. In addition he has worked with Olivier Dubois, Radhouane Elmeddeb, Ramon Baeza, Bernardo Montet, Christian Rizzo and others.

Aboulakoul is a composer as well as a performer and choreographer. Passionately mixing electronic and Moroccan music, he has created soundtracks for several choreographies.

Following the success of The Architects with choreographer Youness Atbane, Today Is a Beautiful Day is Aboulakoul’s first solo performance. It premiers at Dancing on the Edge Festival 2019.
