Maasai Footprints: Preview
Georges Momboye creates a picture of contemporary African dance in "Maasai Footprints." Born in Ivory Coast and trained in traditional African dance schools, Momboye felt constrained by those techniques until he founded his company in 1992. He experiments with ritual, shape, and visual art forms on the stage. He says this piece is about equilibrium: "a body imbalanced, a quest for roots."
