D’ORIENT was created after a series of travels the choreographer made into the Arab world. From there he brought back images flooded with light, filled with sensuality, with beauty and chaos. This performance is not an attempt at political analysis; it is rather a subjective study with an aesthetic purpose. It is inspired by the features of a civilisation, by its people, traditions, myths and dreams, and tries to interpret them freely using the particular language of modern dance.
