Uptown Moves: Artists in Motion & Zab Maboungou / Compagnie Danse Nyata Nyata

November 16, 2019 at 5pm - 7pm

Meridian Arts Centre

Uptown Moves features dance works by Montreal’s world-renowned Zab Maboungou/ Compagnie Danse Nyata Nyata with the Toronto premiere of Mongozi, alongside Shameka Blake’s Toronto company Artists in Motion with a Canadian premiere of their latest work Earth.

This powerful double-bill performance examines our connection to time through contemporary explorations of the dance and music of the African diaspora.

The Saturday Dance Night Out premium ticket includes the dance performances, a screening of the documentary African Dance: Sand, Drum, and Shostakovich that explores African contemporary dance through eight modern dance companies from Africa, Europe and Canada that participated in the Festival International de Nouvelle Danse in Montreal, Canada in 1999, along with an authentic Jamaican dinner catered by Beryl’s Pepper Pot.

Show dates: November 16&17. Show times vary. See the website below for more information:
