An exploration of madness

Inspired by the quatrains of Persian poet and Sufi mystic Djalâl ad-Dîn Rûmî, Ha!, the latest creation by Bouchra Ouizguen, is an exploration of madness. Using the same working method which led to the success of Madame Plaza (presented at New York Live Arts in September 2012 as part of Voices of Strength), Ouizguen returned to Morocco, her homeland, gaining additional inspiration from the cultural terrain that has enriched the movement, singing and language in this new work.
