“In what ‘space’ or ‘time’, or even what landscape [Zab Maboungou] occupies ? It doesn’t matter, because she is spellbinding, effortless embodying the mystery of being”
“Here, on stage, [Maboungou] is an energy force field,… she is spellbinding, effortlessly embodying the mystery of being.”
Philip Szporer, The Dance Current, October 2009.
Movement is about engaging in the here-and-now. For choreographer and interpreter Zab Maboungou, her choreographic vocabulary and personal poetics emerge from those profound musical forms that, through and beyond the instrument, are sustained by our steps and resonate in our gestures. Her dance is a dance for thought.
