casablanca 0811

Part II of The Triptych Trilogy

55 minutes long (45 minutes)

Casablanca 0811 is the most intimate part of the trilogy, revolving around love, freedom, and virtue. While a niqab covered woman is dancing out her polygamous relationship with her husband, a former ballerina- now night club dancer is encountering the man who made her dream impossible on a journey through the Moroccan desert. With a 12 minutes road movie shoot in Casablanca driving to the Merzouga desert, with sound by rock guitar legend Ronni Le Tekrø, a theatrical dreamscape is created on stage by Ella Fiskum,  accompanied by the Berlin based singer Houwaida Goulli. The project is supported by STIKK, Fund for Performing Artists, Oppland Fylkeskommune, Fond for Lyd og Bilde, Vestre Toten, and Arts Council Norway.
