Montreal-based choreographer Zab Maboungou has earned an international reputation for pioneering a unique style which is deeply rooted in traditional African dances, but is imbued with a fiercely contemporary approach. This revival of her seminal 1997 work Mozongi (‘Return') reveals the potent poetic power that she constructs from movement, bodies and rhythms. Performed by six dancers and two percussionists, Mozongi explores time and memory, motion and stillness, the individual and the group. The electrifying dancing and drumming radiates energy and purpose, and the piece emanates profound wisdom, immense heart and unforgettable spirit.
