Kaouther Ben Amor
WAMED is delighted to introduce to you – Kaouther Ben Amor from Paris!
Literally a stone’s throw from the Moulin Rouge in Mont Martre Paris, there lies a studio called the Academic des Arts Choreographiques, Kaouther’s home base.
Tunisian born, Kaouther grew up in Paris and started her career with Mayodi’s Ballet el Noujoum with whom she worked for many years before deciding to become a solo artist. Aiming at perfecting her style
she studied with some of the Egyptian masters, such as Yousry Sharif, Raqia Hassan, Dina, Randa Kamel and many others. She has performed and taught all over the world from Europe, the US, Japan and the Middle
East. Kaouther’s name and reputation grew and she became a regular teacher at the Ahlan we Sahlan festival in Cairo.
Kaouther is particularly known for the theatrical dimension she gives to her expressive interpretations and original choreographies. She created dances for Rachid Bouchared’s film Outside the Law from the Cannes
Film Festival 2010 and for the Tunisian Director Elyes Baccar in the movie Tunis By Night.
There will be lots more about our amazing guest artist that will come out on our website and in our newsletters between now and June, but enjoy heading down the social media rabbithole to check out some of Kaouther's pictures, videos and clips on her various platforms linked below.
We are delighted to host Kaouther as our guest artist for the 2023 festival!
