Drawing on family archives and personal anecdotes, Brussels choreographer Habib Ben Tanfous makes his body the epicentre of an intimate, funny and sensitive investigation on the ambivalences of heritage. What to do with what we inherit, as it does not necessarily belong to us? What to pass on in our own time? Surrounded by the music and the voices that populate his past and present, Habib Ben Tanfous has composed a striking solo about the tensions, the mourning and the joys that accompany the creation of a life of one's own.

Habib Ben Tanfous is based in Brussels, where he began training in hip hop dance at the age of 15. He has collaborated with many artists, including the Impulsion and The Revolutionary collectives. At the age of 22, he entered the Royal Conservatory of Brussels in the dramatic interpretation section and graduated in 2018 with the Prix du Jury. He is a member of the RAVIE collective and is one of the artists of the Tremplin Hip Hop #3. In 2019, he started a higher certificate in Dance and Choreographic Practices at Charleroi danse in partnership with INSAS and ENSAV La Cambre. As a choreographer, he created Finek, a piece for five dancers. The solo Ici je lègue ce qui ne m'appartient pas is also a creation of his, co-produced by Atelier 210, Théâtre Varia, Charleroi danse, Les SUBS and FINEK.
