How to hold onto your identity when you're severed from your roots. Syrian dancer and choreographer Mithkal Alzghair, drawing on his own experience as a refugee for his piece, Displacement. It's been showing at Sadler's Wells, London, this month as part of the Shubbak festival of Arab culture. But we have a little bit of indulging, we need to maybe remember who we are.
I choose to dance the Syrian dance, traditional dance, the first dance which is named
dance that is name. The one dance, it's with dance feet, with the legs and other, with arms with hand. I tried to put the light on the individual, and how we can see the individual inside the group, how we can see our relation to that community.
And do we see the community or do we see the individual?
