Displacement introduces the poignant work of Syrian dancer and choreographer Mithkal Alzghair. In a solo and a trio he draws attention to the human being admit the complexities of migration and war. Deconstructing Syrian traditional dances, he brings to the surface the paradox of a deeply rooted culture and its current experience of displacement. Alzghair trained in Damascus and Montpellier, having fled to France to avoid military service. Since winning the First Prize at the Danse elargie 2016 contest, organised by the Theatre de la Ville- Paris and the Musee de la dance-Rennes, in partnership with the Foundation d'enterprise Hermes, Displacement has toured extensively to major international festivals.
