The Lebanese Danya Hammoud (and two other female dancers Cynthia Zaven and Chirine Karame) will be artist in residence for 10 days with Moussem: from March 20th to March 30th 2016. All three are creating the performance ‘Il y a longtemps que je n’ai pas été aussi calme’.
In this performance, Hammoud is looking for a state of 'madness', she gets her inspiration from the theatreplays by Georg Büchner. The premiere of this productions will be in June 2016 at the prestigious Montpellier Danse-festival in France.
A critic on Danya Hammouds previous work ‘Mahalli’:
“From murderous societies aiming at exclusion, where individuals attempt to rely on their own resources to find a reason for living and continue to defend what seems to them still indispensable to survival. The madness that Danya Hammoud seeks to decipher is not a pathological or psychological state, but rather a physical or existential condition. Who are the (mad) women of today?”
