About Event

What are our contemporary stories? Who’s best fit to tell them? How do these stories translate on our bodies? What form do they take?

Movement Vocab Showcase is an evening of retelling a contemporary Ethiopian story with a dance performance. The night is an invitation to fly and become airborne so we pause and observe from above, the patterns we weave, the dots we connect, and the works we create.

On May 23rd Dawit Seto will present his choreography using the newly minted Ethiopian contemporary dance technique. Inspired by traditional dance movements and developed through a creative research process conducted in Northern Ethiopia and during his residency in Paris, Movement Vocab is a cross media collaboration borne of imagining something new.

We invite you to come and witness as Ethiopian traditional movement takes flight into contemporary form.

This project is made possible with the generous support from Embassy of France in Ethiopia, Alliance Ethio-française, Institut Francais, Cité internationale des arts, and Centre National de la Danse
