The Dialogue Series: IV. MOYA

Dancer Moya Michael was born in South African under a political regime in which the color of your skin determined your rights and aspirations in society. To be or not to be of color in Johannesburg means something different than in Kinsangani or Brussels. With an imaginary jukebox, Moya Michael shares her questions, choices and concerns in an accompanied solo, vulnerable and honest, disarming in its simplicity.
