The Rooster

Malek Andary + Ata Khatab

The Lebanese Malek Andary is a specialist of dabke, the folk dance from Syria, Palestine, Jordan and Iraq.

The Palestinians have raised the dance successfully and exclusively to their national dance, and the father of dancer Atta Khattab was partly responsible. 35 years ago, he was the driving force behind folk dance group El Funoun, an institute in Ramallah. In the meantime, Abu Atta started his own company, because he considered El Funoun to deviate from the right folkloristic path. His son Atta is incorporating this history, but also integrates several influences of contemporary dance. Amongst others, he was part of the team that created “Badke” (a co-production of KVS/les ballets C de la B/A.M. Qattan Foundation), and aims to expand the dabke to a contemporary dance idiom.

All this resonates in the background of The Rooster, a group dance for five dancers, a performance about who is the ruler of the dunghill.

About the festival

Connexion vzw (Brussels) and A.M.Qattan Foundation are proposing a focus on flemish-palestinian co-operation in arts and culture, inspired by the Government of Flanders and the Mission of Palestine in Europe, Belgium and Luxembourg who decided on a Flemish-Palestinian cultural project. Unlike the logic of events like Europalia, or even the Venice biennale which are a projection of the imagination of a country, Under Construction is based on reciprocity and aims to promote cultural cooperation, dialogue and exchange.

Instead of focusing on difference and alterity, the two organising partners focus on co-operation and solidarity, and give more visibility and value to forms of 'togetherness' that are already existing between Flanders and Palestine.

Practical details

The Minard theatre is the festival centre.
The reception and the bar are open one hour before the start of the first show.
Access to all of the shows is Pay what you want : no fixed price, you determine yourself what you can/are willing to pay.
It is not possible to reserve beforehand. You can get your ticket starting from 1 hour before the first show. So: first come, first served.
This is also the case for Parcours, the guided walks that start from Minard.
You will find a shop of Disarming Design from Palestine in the entrance hall.
