ATLAS / THE MOUNTAIN is the first part of a new trilogy by Radouan Mriziga, inspired by mythological stories from the Amazigh culture, and in particular those who have a close relationship with the Atlas Mountains in North Africa, in terms of spirituality, art, philosophy, craft, and science.
In ATLAS / THE MOUNTAIN, Mriziga has crafted a solo performance that delves into the intricate layers of significance surrounding the mountain's natural environment, as both a romantic and a political symbol, offering refuge and protection during times of war and oppression.
