Based in France, choreographer and dancer Mithkal Alzghair questions with powerful dancing, a combination of tradition and modernity, the torn identity of Syrian bodies in the light of the political, social and religious conditions that they are going through. Between anchoring and uprooting, he is interested in the notion of "displacement": forced or voluntary, in case of emergency or through coercion, due to the need to leave or worried about not being able to go back.

"The play is not a document about war in Syria. It is a fluctuation of strengths, through contagion, impregnation, overflow. It is never fixed, while touching upon crucial questions such as the meaning of life, of being human. And what dancing means."
