In the performance Uittegratie, Aziz Bekkaoui brings artists, writers, politicians, comedians, singers and dancers together in a festive cocktail while confronting genres and styles. Uittegratie is a performance that is against polarizing politicians.
According to Aziz Bekkaoui in the recent years the concept of integration has been abused by many copy cat politicians under the concept of ‘integration’. The word itself has fallen from grace. If you repeat long enough that something will fail, everyone will believe it and people will behave according. With fear, people are put at a distance, in almost untenable and irreconcilable black and white positions. To what extent do the prevailing clichés make sense? What do we really know about each other?
