Beauty remained for just a moment then returned gently to her starting position…
Choreographer Robyn Orlin, is working with the beautiful dance troupe Moving Into Dance Mophatong, to present a hymn to the beauty of Africa. The exotic imagery is based upon the customs Surma and Mursi tribes: in everyday life, women adorn themselves with body paint and wooden ornaments, plants and animals of a wild eccentricity. This new piece is dedicated to the inventiveness of these people in a particularly stylised way. If there is no universal beauty, the universality of beauty does exist.
Part of Biennale de la danse de Lyon.
