Nyata Nyata is a contemporary dance company that teaches dance that supports dance technique trains dancers, produces staged and off-stage work, develop audiences, and actively participates in the institutional renewal of art policies. After 30 years of tireless work in creation and teaching, the company has earned an enviable reputation both in Canada and abroad.
Founded by Artistic Director Zab Maboungou, Montreal’s Compagnie Danse Nyata Nyata is a living laboratory where research, theory, and training provide for a unique approach to movement, rhythm and gesture.
Zab Maboungou’s choreography takes shape at the heart of the musical architecture of bodies and space where movement of the dancers’ bodies, the musicians, the instruments, and time are woven together and presented within an integrated scenography of sounds and gestures.
Mozongi, at Prismatic 2019, Compagnie Dance Nyata Nyata is performing Mozongi – a piece about time, and more precisely, about the physics of time. The step is weight and weight is time. Not repetition, but persistence.
The structure of Mozongi unfolds through the contrasts of movement and of immobility, of the one and of the many, in order to give shape to a primordial conflict – that of time which consumes space.
Prismatic is delighted to have Mozongi perform at the Gladstone Theatre in Ottawa.
