This dance theatrical performance is about Mariam the prostitute, or ‘the whore’, as the people in Morocco call her. When night falls, everyone seeks her out, and in daylight, everyone denounces her. The performance will take place in the common spaces like local coffee shops and bazaars. Viewers will be watching while they eat their daily bread and the Moroccan ‘Kermoos’ sandwich, a meal traditionally reserved for serving at the death and burial of Moroccan citizens.
