Two personal dance solos

In ‘COLOURED SWANS’, dancer, performer and choreographer Moya Michael wonders how the various different identities that are imposed on us might influence our body and how we move, speak and sing. She invites artists from diverse disciplines and backgrounds to accompany her in this quest and to share their personal stories. Each encounter leads to a solo piece, created for and with the artist. Moya will show two creations during SAME SAME BUT DIFFERENT.

In ‘COLOURED SWANS I: KhoiSwan’ Michael teams up with visual- and performance artist Tracey Rose to explore their African roots and heritage. They investigate where they stand today as women of colour and as descendants of the Khoi peoples of southern Africa.

For the second solo ‘COLOURED SWANS II: Eldorado’, Moya works with dancer, performer and choreographer David Hernandez. Their points of departure are Hernandez’s experiences as an American citizen and as a Latino artist, as well as the historical encounters between the Spanish colonialists and the indigenous peoples of Latin America and Mexico.
