‘I am not one story, I am many stories.’

Mohamed Toukabri’s autobiographical solo delves deeply into the experience of a young man finding himself in dance and in Europe. From discovering street dance as a 12-year old in front of the railway station in Tunis to his 10 years of performing with renowned choreographers like Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Jan Lauwers, his movements and reflections resonate with sharp insight to explore a personal yet universal migrant experience. Subtle video projections from his family home, stories of casual racism and subtly humoured observations blend into a richly textured experience of being in-between two countries, two cultures, two traditions. With thoughtful reflection as well as a candid irony, he takes us to what he calls ‘the splendour of this mysterious zone’.

Mohamed Toukabri is a Tunisian artist based in Brussels. He performed in Shubbak 2017 in Cie Chathaís outdoor performances of Sacrè Printemps!

Presented with additional support from Qatar Foundation International.
