A group of women emerge, silently they arrive, then come to a halt. Forming geometric alchemical arrangements they move again and again now accompanied by their piercing sounds and extraordinary cries in a stirring performance of movement and sound.

Drawing from Persian literature from 9th - 11th Century and memories of long trance nights in Marrakech, Bouchra Ouizguen has created an intense performance that interrupts and takes possession of public spaces. Corbeaux is performed by ten women from Morocco and up to ten local performers, brought together by Serpentine Galleries to work with Bouchra Ouizguen for the London performances.

Corbeaux was commissioned by Marrakech Biennale 2014 for the city's railway station, and has since toured internationally including the Kunstenfestivaldesarts (Brussels), Kampnagel (Hamburg), Home Works (Beirut) and The Louvre in Paris.
