Along with four young dancers from Meknes and Casablanca, Youness Khoukhou explores the human body as an inexhaustible source of information – and as an image that only needs to be deciphered. He shows bodies that retain energy, shape it, and pass it on, thus paving their way to the imagination.

We live in an age in which human activity has a profound impact on our physical and ecological surroundings. Nevertheless, these transformations often go unseen. How can we create stories, aesthetics, and spaces of experience to deal with this situation reflectively and critically? Looking for answers, David Weber-Krebs and Jeroen Peeters install a series of hybrid artistic and theoretical interventions in a performative setting.
