Dance is an extraordinarily suitable instrument for cultural diplomacy, and this is what MASDANZA has been doing all these years, collaborating in common areas with other cultural initiatives that have a special place for dance and the arts of movement. Casa África collaborates with the festival to provide visibility to African creators.

“This piece is a real work, which relates historical and dramatic facts. It is difficult to express orally what we experience in front of an audience is, this piece is alive and original. It speaks about the reality that many people live in silent, harsh and unsupported ways, without an identity card. My identity card has always interested me as a spectacular work, because I worked hard to have it, It is not easy to talk about this, but it turns out that I am not the only one to experience this. This piece is about the complicated path I had to obtain and have what is right for me, a dramatic journey”.
Note: The presentation of the piece will be followed by a meeting between the artist and the audience, where he will explain his creative process and the meaning of his work.
