McIntosh Jerahuni

L'après-midi d'un faune


Nominated for the ZKB Acknowledgement Prize and the ZKB Audience Prize

«Why do you hide behind a mask?» is a key phrase from McIntosh Jerahuni as well as the leitmotiv of his entire artistic oeuvre of this mult-talented dancer, musician and choreographer. His creative drive is a search for identity: the cultural and the political identity of his country, but also personal sexual identity in a countrywhich approved the prohibition of homosexuality in 2006. His solo is a powerful, fierce statement to rip off the white mask, to cast off the folkloric clothing and to show yourself for who you are. (esc)
