 The work of Arkadi Zaides, an Israeli independent choreographer, of Belarusian descent and residing in France, is politically charged. In NECROPOLIS he talks to us about the victims of the migration crisis based on forensic analysis and the records kept by hundreds of anti-racist organisations from all over Europe. Through choreographic tools, the artist invites us to question our ethical responsibility regarding the tragic deaths of people trying to reach Europe.

Arkadi Zaides, (b. 1979, Belorussia) is an independent choreographer based in France. He holds a Master’s degree from the AHK Academy of Theater and Dance in Amsterdam, and is presently pursuing a joint practice-based PhD degree at Antwerp University and Ghent University. He is a member of CORPoREAL research group at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp and a member of S:PAM (Studies in Performing Arts & Media) at Ghent University. Zaides’ work examines the ways in which political and social contexts effect the physical body and constitute choreography. He is a recipient of numerous prizes, among them a prize for demonstrating engagement in human-rights issues, awarded to Zaides by The Emile Zola Chair.
