Mourad Merzouki is not the first artist to combine dance and video art. In fact, he is one of thousands who have attempted to integrate these two forms. However, none have so perfectly or seamlessly managed to marry the screen and the moving body as Merzouki has in his 2014 opus Pixel.
The Lyon-born performer and choreographer is a master of fusion.
Over the past 20 years, he made a name for himself with his unusual combinations of theater, circus, pyrotechnics and different dance styles, namely hip hop and contemporary. Pixel, which will be presented at the Herzliya Performing Arts Center, is by far the most ambitious and refined of Merzouki’s works to date.
