Nafro Dance, Sauti – Things We are Carrying, Nov 3 2013

Sauti – Things We are Carrying:

“We are carrying fresh emotions, dry emotions, noises, shadows and love. We are carrying messages that are embedded in our bodies, our breath, our steps and our movements.
Within our choreographic journey, we are carrying rhythmic, thoughtful and emotional voices.
Dance it is a human journey.”
– Casimiro Nhussi

Noise

“Noise manifests itself in the most intimate and worldly manner, allowing us to carve a space for ourselves and make our way into this world.
It is music when we want it to be.. and, or, it is noise….” – Zab Maboungou
