Following Chienne de Vie - a powerful work on the theme of exclusion, and Mozart - a duet about the tumultuous relationship between Saliéri and the young prodigy - Mohamed Belarbi now turns his attention to interpreting this dilemma faced by all of us. Taking inspiration from the frightening visual universe in H.R Giger's movie “Alien” this is a spectacular and powerful piece of hip hop dance theatre.

Death is a certainty that unites us all. From birth, each of us has to live this "Alien" concept.  Through our attempts to comprehend our mortality, we are faced with the fundamental questions asking the meaning of life, the universe and everything.  For some, the search for this meaning can give birth to a faith in God, nature, science and humanity.

Rather than being fearful of the aliens within ourselves, we are asked to take hold of our fears and anxieties that plague our imaginations.
