Kenza Berrada was born and grew up in Rabat, before settling in Paris at the age of 17.
She obtained her Masters degree in literature at La Sorbonne.
At that same time, she was pursuing an acting and performance training at Cours Simon & Florent, in the physical theatre training laboratory, at the école Jacques Lecoq, with contemporary dancer Elsa Wolliatso.
Kenza Berrada is interested in the subject of frontiers and fantasized bodies, all while writing on the history of Tangier city. She participated as an artist in Agora, a biennial of architecture in Rabat-Salé on the theme of the in-between (l’entre deux).
It was at the Venice Biennale of Architecture that she really undertook a research and worked on erotic myths in relation to geographical contexts.
With a group of actors, she created the Collective Nash, mixing stage writing and authors’ texts.
She is also stage assistant and works on intimate political issues, with Alexander Zeldin, associate at the National Theatre in London.
Under the direction of Silvia Costa, collaborator of Romeo Castellucci, she plays in Flaubert’s La Tentation de Saint-Antoine.
The dialogue between words, bodies and objects offers a theatrical and visual journey nourished by visual arts.
