French-Tunisian choreographer Radhouane El Meddeb harkens back to the glory age of Arab cinema in this bittersweet dance work performed by four men. Pared down to existential intensity, rolling hips, exposed navels, and irresistible flirting, Au temps serves to eloquently celebrate and provoke. It’s a volcanic dance on the precipice of chaos to come.

This performance is part of the TBA Festival Flight: Identity & the Body, which reflects a range of artists from diverse disciplines who work across dance/choreography and interdisciplinary performance to engage the embodied politics and poetics of race, ethnicity, gender, culture, and their intersections.
