"BOUJLOUD, بوجلود / MAN OF SKINS", A PERFORMANCE BY KENZA BERRADA / CREATION 2020-2021

Boujloud (‘Man of skins’ in Darija) is an ancestral Moroccan rite in the aftermath of the sacrifice of the sheep, whose legend places its origin in a divine punishment: a man having abused women in a sacred place, is transformed into a man-animal.

 

« I didn’t think my story would be of interest to anyone. »

 

It is from this sentence, confided by Houria, that Kenza Berrada started writing a performance on the issue of abuse. She met victims of agression in Morocco, listened to them and gave them a voice and a body. The accumulation of singular voices results in the appearance of a crowd. It is a secret, yet omnipresent continent that emerges: that of those who experienced abuse.

 

In her very own way, Kenza tries to answer them, making resonate questions such as ‘how does one get oneself listened to?’, ‘is there a ‘right moment’ to tell, and to be heard?’, and many others.
