The word Haschoema means ‘shame on you’ and is used in the Moroccan community when someone’s behaviour is inappropriate. This single word expresses an understanding, a feeling and a certain tension.

The social control in the Moroccan community and the impact this has on women is the central theme in this performance by Mouna Laroussi. Tension versus release, caged versus freedom and death versus love.

Choreographer Mouna Laroussi embodies her bi-cultural Moroccan Dutch roots in innovative crossover dance styles. Her work is characterized by her raw, muscular choreographies with a dose of reality and a touch of humour. As a choreographer and theater maker she looks beyond borders and is inspired by cultural differences and similarities.
