About the Show

Choreographed by Newton Moraes

Choreographed by Newton Moraes, Ashe explores the explosion of body movements, markedly Luso-African, in a context where body and verbal language intertwine between the movement and the verbalization of national languages including, Emakhuwa, Changana, Elomwe, Portuguese and English.

Ashe affirms a dialogue between contemporary Brazilian technique and Canadian-Mozambican dancer Pulga Muchochoma’s movement vocabulary, and music by Matthew Reid. Moraes then adds a game of scenic lights that provoke reflections and questions about the necessity of intercultural voices communicating in a world threatened by isolation of groups of people and national communities
