In his new performance 3600, a choreography for four dancers, Radouan Mriziga approaches dance from an architectural perspective, with the body as central instrument for the performance. 3600 is a search for a linear and transparent structured choreography. A construction where the movement and narratives are distilled from the act of constructing visual objects. Where the body is used as a measurement tool. 3600 seconds of no separation between the body, spirit, and the intellect. A space where the dancers and performers become craftsman and architects. and Islamic art where the objects produced are a perfect meeting between aesthetics and function, where art is mathematically precise, aesthetically pleasing and symbolic. Inspired by modern architecture 3600 is a space where we perform all what we construct and the constructed is our performance.
