Maria Tembe / Panaibra Gabriel Canda: Solo for Maria DESTINO Dance Company: Ene Man Negn

Part of "Return to Sender"


ca. 30 Min

With “Solo for Maria”, Maria Tembe and Panaibra Canda have created two short solos observing the status of women in the world. How many women live in the body of a woman?

The second piece “Ene Man Negn” (Who am I?) talks about how two young performers shaped their national identity by keeping a very subtle balance – between the sense of belonging to a place and the wish to embrace new ideas, between the past and the future. In this choreography Addisu Demissie and Junaid Jemal Sendi open themselves to the audience to narrate their story and those confusing, but exciting moments lived, that brought them where they are today.
