Not Just Dance

“A dance with deep African roots at the source of contemporary life. »
– La Nuova Sardegna, October 2007

“The choreographer who interprets her solo, delivers to the public a performance equal to the brilliance of the phrasing of her creation. »
– François Dufort, DFdanse, October 2007

"A cello, powerful drums and a moving body to embody a voice that does not use words to bring everyone an unspeakable, universal and personal message at the same time. »
– Fabienne Cabado, See


Space is solitude since it delimits and separates us. While we count our actions, time undoes them, playing with our deadlines and multiplying the impossible – the dance is in the moment which, inexplicably, stretches out. . . Zab Maboungou offers us this silent solo in music, provided with gestures with multiple references and failing in a point in constant regression. The gestures of Zab Maboungou, the interpreter, are both fluid and sharp. Extremely codified, it testifies to an incomparable freedom of movement: the body is challenged there to the extent of its ability to persist while changing.
