Balkis Moutashar

Balkis Moutashar is a choreographer and dancer. She studied philosophy, contemporary dance, and several world dances, been a music-hall performer, and likes to explore different aesthetic territories. Based in Marseilles, she creates shows which question our gestures and their origins. Where do the gestures we watch on a stage come from, and what do they connect to? What is their history?
