We asked choreographer and dancer Moya Michael about her favourite place in Brussels:
“I mostly love the many amazing parks Brussels boasts. Just let me get lost in Duden Park or the Sonian Forest. I can truly find inner calm there. In South Africa the cities don’t have much greenery. I didn’t grow up with so many lovely parks in a capital city. It’s a joy to see how families, friends, lovers come together in the Brussels parks to spend their day relaxing. The parks of Brussels are truly alive.”
In Coloured Swans, dancer, performer and choreographer Moya Michael questions how layers of imposed identities change how an artist moves, speaks, sings and what specific spaces their bodies visualise or capture. Dance and performance are intertwined with singing, video and speech.
Classified as a “coloured” person in Apartheid South Africa, Moya invites artists from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds to join her in this quest. Together they will share their personal stories in order to confront and intertwine the complexity of their experiences into one overarching creation. Each encounter leads to a solo created for and with the artist as one of the swans of Coloured Swans. You can book them together!
