Radouan Mriziga

Radouan Mriziga (b. 1985) is a choreographer and dancer from Morocco who studied dance in Marrakesh and Tunis. Since the start of his career he has been mentored by Jacques Garros and Jean Mass. In 2012 he graduated from P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels, immediately collaborating on various productions such as Half Elf Zomeravond produced by Bart Meuleman at Toneelhuis. He is one of the performers in Re:Zeitung, a pro- ject by the P.A.R.T.S. Foundation and De Munt in which a new generation of professional dancers rework Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s repertoire. He also danced in the performance of Primitive by Claire Croizé, People in a Field by Simon Tanguy and Becoming by Younes Khoukhou. Fairly quickly he began to focus on his own work and in 2013 started his research as artist-in-residence at Moussem. He worked there on his first solo, 55. A group piece 3600 followes in 2016, and then in 2017 the group performance 7, the third part of the Moussem-produced trilogy in which he explores the relationship between choreography, constructions, Islamic arts, craftsmanship and architecture. It portrays humans as a balancing act between the intellect, the body and the spirit.
As part of Moussem Cities Casablanca in 2018, he creates '8', a performance with 2 young Moroccan dancers.
In 2019 Radouan makes his first youth performance 8.2, a co-production of Moussem, hetpaleis and fABULEUS, and in 2018 and 2019 he creates the in situ projects 0.extracity and 0.kanal.

As house artist at Moussem, he has enjoyed far-reaching support in the creation and production of his oeuvre since 2013. From 2020 Radouan will continue under his own wings. Moussem supports the creation of his own company as well as the production of his new trilogy.
