Esraa Warda: T'meryil Invasion
Esraa Warda's "T'meryil Invasion" is a collection of danced stories foregrounding the ancestral feminist politics and non-conformist realness of Algerian Rai music and dance. Warda will take you on a journey through her personal tales, weaving humor, and vulnerability while contextualizing the historical censorship of Algerian dance/rs. We will then experience the T’meryil Invasion by the “meryoulats” – the mischievous and cabaret-loving Algerian women. Their presence reignites the flame of resilience, bodily autonomy, and liberation, leaving us with faith in the power of movement(s).
