Meryem Jazouli

The performer and choreographer Meryem Jazouli is a familiar face at Moussem. Not only through the presentation and co-production of her earlier work, but also because of the long-term cooperation between Moussem and Espace Darja, the dance workplace in Casablanca where Jazouli is the driving force.

In 2014 there is a first collaboration with Espace Darja in the framework of Moussem DansPlatform. Meryem resides at Moussem for the creation 'Contessa'. In 2015/2016 she resides for the creation 'Devine qui vient danser ce soir', a duo with Taoufiq Izeddiou. In her creation Folkah! (2018), on the occasion of Moussem Cities: Casablanca, she investigates ‘La Guedra’, a ceremonial dance from the Sahara, together with the singer Malika Zarra.
