In the 19th century racism, colonialism, anti-Semitism patriarchy and nationalism was decisive in shaping societies and in the knowledge production. In this time, every kind of indigenous or popular knowledge that did not correspond to the ‘civilized’, was consistently destroyed. These erased narratives still influence our present towards local and global contexts. 

Ayur (The Moon) is the first piece of a new trilogy by Radouan Mriziga that will be developing between 2019 and 2021 based on Amazigh female epistemologies.  Ayur / Tanit, goddess associated to the moon in the punic Carthage, is as a solo by and with  Tunisian dancer  Sondos Belhassen, based on texts written by the poet Lilia Ben Romdhane and  the rapper Mahdi Chammen “Massi”.
