The Smala B.B. - Khalid Benghrib
Event: The Smala B.B - Khaled Benghrib
Time: 20:30 - 21:45
Location: Theater Kikker | Utrecht
In a coherent series of sketches, Khalid BenGhrib and his contemporary dance group create an unexpected view of Western and Arab city life. Inspired by the paintings of Jeroen Bosch, the sometimes humorous, sometimes absurd sequences are surprising and clever. The all-male cast has a wide variety of backgrounds ranging from dance and graphic design to classic Arabic singing, making for a rich and varied performance.
The Smala B.B. has been performed in Casablanca, Marrakech, Cairo, Beirut, Tunis, Washington, Montpellier, Bruges, Antwerp and other cities around the world.
Khalid BenGhrib was born in Casablanca, studied dance in Rochelle, France, and then performed with Carolyn Carlson, Heddy Maalem, Régine Chopinot, Jean Francois Duroure, Fabienne Abramovich and others. Together with Loren Palmer he has created the compagnie 2k_far, which has performed in many countries throughout the world. BenGhrib is also active in local communities, giving workshops for young people in both Morocco and abroad. During the festival he will be leading the educational school program Morocco Moves.
Performed by: Cie 2k_far / Khalid BenGhrib, Youness Aboulakoul, Younes Atbane, Zouheir Atbane, Aziz Nadif.
