Witness the New York premiere ofCorbeaux (Crows), a new dance performance by Moroccan choreographer Bouchra Ouizguen, as part of theCrossing the Line Festival, a citywide arts festival that brings international artists and New York City audiences together in discovery and dialogue.

Corbeaux (Crows)is a hypnotic, site-specific living sculpture that interrupts and transforms public spaces. Dark silhouettes of women emerge from the shadows and silently fan out across the Beaux-Arts Court. Forming alchemical arrangements, they move again and again, erupting into an immersive chorus of piercing sounds and rhythmic cries, making all notions of time and space disappear.

Corbeaux (Crows)is presented by the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)'s 2017Crossing the Line Festivalin partnership with Abrons Arts Center, Movement Research, and the Brooklyn Museum. Supported by the Hermès Foundation within the framework of the New Settings Program, FUSED, the French Institute in Paris, and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States.
