Le Trait


“Nacera Belaza practices purity, imperceptible nuance, the painting of a slow body through a play of light and shadow. She is to dance what Bresson is to cinema or Claude Régy to theatre.”

Christian Jade, RTBF

“In a duet with her sister Dalila, joined here by two male dancers, this uncompromising artist offers a minimalist dance that fascinates […] Belaza, from one piece to the next, works on this recurring motif, that of a movement as close to imbalance as possible. Superb.”

Philippe Noisette, Les Echos
