Bouchra Ouizguen: Corbeaux (Crows) [New York Premiere]
Run time: 30 minutes
A group of women in black dresses and white headscarves silently fans out across the Brooklyn Museum’s Beaux-Arts Court before erupting into an immersive chorus of rhythmic cries. Moroccan performers are joined by a local cast of New Yorkers for this frenzied, full-body performance. Inspired by Moroccan trance rituals, Corbeaux (Crows) is a hypnotic, site-specific living sculpture that interrupts and transforms public spaces.
Major support provided by the Hermès Foundation within the framework of the New Settings Program.
