Manal Tass, a Moroccan dancer and performer, is first and foremost a person grateful to exist, expressing this gratitude by dancing and encouraging others to dance and to reconnect with their internality through their bodies. Her aspiration is to bring more accessibility and inclusion to the artistic practice of the body, particularly with the bodies that are often marginalized.
Manal’s research focuses on the question how dance and performance can set the stage for healing, political and spiritual transformation.
Since 2015, she has dedicated herself to dance and attended numerous workshops and trainings, primarily at LocalD-espace de danse et Danse harmonie in Casablanca, Irtijal in Rabat, EnDanse in Tanger and NAFAS in Marrakech.
Manal works with choreographers, collectives and companies as well. She continues to do so in order to develop her solo “Kobul” that she has previously performed in Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco. She is also responsible for dance and theatre workshops.
In addition to her artistic practice, Manal Tass takes part in an educational project aimed at children living in rural areas, and is committed to feminist ideas and practices.
