Season Opening
  Boyzie Cekwana and Panaibra Canda
The Inkomati (dis)cord

Co-presented with the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)'s Crossing the Line 2013 Festival
Sep 25 & 26 at 7:30pm
0

Making its U.S. premiere, The Inkomati (dis)cord is a work made collaboratively by South African artist Boyzie Cekwana and Mozambique artist Panaibra Canda. In 1984, the Mozambique of Samora Machel and the South African apartheid state signed the Nkomati accord, a non-aggression pact. The Inkomati (dis)cord is Cekwana and Canda's referral to this failed historical agreement, as well as the river that lent its name to it. In an attempt to break through artificial borders and traverse territories, using their own bodies, skins, identities and histories, the choreographers explore the internalized colonial boundaries that still alienate shared histories and aspirations.

Sep 25 at 6:30pm Come Early Conversation: Destabilizing Reality, A Discussion on African Surrealism, moderated by Awam Amkpa, PhD (Associate Professor, NYU; author of Theater and Postcolonial Desires).

Sep 26 Stay Late Discussion: Discussing The Inkomati (dis)cord, Simon Dove, Co-Curator of Crossing the Line, in conversation with Boyzie Cekwana and Panaibra Canda.

Bouchra Ouizguen
Ha!

Co-presented with the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)'s Crossing the Line 2013 Festival

Inspired by the quatrains of Persian poet and Sufi mystic Djalâl ad-Dîn Rûmî, Ha!, the latest creation by Bouchra Ouizguen, is an exploration of madness. Using the same working method which led to the success of Madame Plaza (presented at New York Live Arts in September 2012 as part of Voices of Strength), Ouizguen returned to Morocco, her homeland, gaining additional inspiration from the cultural terrain that has enriched the movement, singing and language in this new work.
