The Man Who Danced Alone

What is it like to live as an openly gay person in Casablanca? The LGBT + community is a target group that unfortunately does not always experience a sense of social safety. That is certainly true in Morocco. We wanted to make the life of this community in Morocco visible.

The only belly dancer in Morocco

In the performance The Man Who Danced Alone, Charafe Ennaji, the only male and gay Moroccan belly dancer, tells his story. To make you think, but also to show that you can be who you want to be. The police regularly stop Charafe’s belly dance performances and arrest him. But he continues and with success, including a worldwide broadcast. Our performance ended with a discussion panel.
