Dihya

Ticket 300 MT

A point of detour in the history of a people, that of the defeat of the Amazigh queen DIHYA in her battle against the Umayyad invasion after 5 years of resistance.

A battle which subsequently marked the end of an era where a matriarchal system reigned to give way to the Arab-Muslim patriarchy.

System which still persists fourteen centuries later, and within which I received biased indoctrination and learned a falsified history.

Through this piece which evokes power, sacrifice, freedom and love, I imagine different realities, those where DIHYA could have written other scenarios.
