Detox Mornings: Simomo Bouj

Could you use a moment of recharging? Need to recover from the rave experience Respublika or another festival experience? Then come to the low-stimulus detox mornings at De Balie. Each time, a different artist will take you on a refreshing morning ritual. Start your day with music, dance or literature and enjoy breakfast with the artist afterwards.

Dancer and curator Simomo Bouj moves, moves others, and is moved by others, in many different contexts: inside and ouside, professional and non-professional. Simomo holds space and helps activate it collectively. With diverse (cultural, professional, moving) skills that find origins from Morocco to here. With a varied dance background: starting 'on the streets' where they danced hip-hop and at the Royal Conservatory of contemporary dance in Antwerp. Simomo has also started a Masters research program ISAC (Institute Supérieure des Arts Chorégraphique) at the Académie des Beaux Arts in Brussels, continuing with their research based in Thanzhaus NRW Dusseldorf. Now based in Rotterdam, they like to play with artists from the low lands cross medium. Bouj is also the adjunct director of NO LIMITS! ART CASTLE, an art space that exposes/ initiates and researches collaborations between the Outsider- and Insider-art world. Bouj loves to question the value of art and the artist.
