8.2. by choreographer Radouan Mriziga was inspired by an old love: rap music. Along with seven young performers, he researched everything that makes rap unique: the rhythm, the flow, the statements and gestures, and its history from the grandmasters to Kendrick Lamar. In 8.2, they attempt to capture the essence of a style of music that transcends musical trends and survives across generations – and which constantly reinvents itself.
• Radouan Mriziga studied dance in Tunisia and at PARTS in Brussels. His performances explore the relationships between movement, construction and composition, bodies and architecture. He is currently an artist-in-residence at Moussem Nomadic Arts Centre and Kaaitheater. His solo 55 and the group works 3600 and 7 each premièred here. During Performatik19, he presented 0.KANAL at KANAL – Centre Pompidou.
‘The seven dancers are beautiful to watch, in all their surrender, diversity and colourful outfits. Along with choreographer Radouan Mriziga, they brewed a fascinating medley, full of rap flows and moves.’  – DE STANDAARD

‘Here, rap is a vehicle for, or even the expression of the preoccupations of a generation.’ – ETCETERA
