Abstract

In 2015, choreographer Radouan Mriziga (Morocco, Belgium, 1985) performed a version of his solo 55 (2014) in the Palais de la Dynastie in Brussels (2015). In it, he constructed a floor plan within a building that he leaves almost untouched, creating a moment in which choreography and architecture seemingly dialogue as equal interlocutors. This article will research when and how this moment takes place and argue that 55 and the Palais de la Dynastie come together by way of joints, physical as well as architectural. Building on poststructural theory, this text will find moments of speculation to tentatively flesh out the implications of this articulated approach to architecture, both for the Palais de la Dynastie as well as for 55.
