Ici je lègue ce qui ne m’appartient pas | 2023

Drawing on family archives, childhood memories and recent personal events, Habib Ben Tanfous makes his body the epicentre of his research and the medium of his language. Visceral, delicate, unique, his vocabulary translates the intimate ambivalences of an omnipresent heritage around which he constructs an incisive and deeply moving dance.
