INCANTATION

“Hypnotizing… a highly controlled form of energy: a finely cut diamond…”
Anna Kisselgoff, New York Times

Solo, 1995

you wizards
Leaders of our begun lives
Dance a dance like no other...
You are the real blackmailers
Invisible Powers
 

WORK

In Incantation, Zab Maboungou fully assumes the role of instigator of a dance that time never stops: delivered to a progression that is both meticulous and autonomous (voice, body and percussion), the gestures that emerge from this work , even if it is powerful and voluntary, remains entirely dedicated to the very place and moment where it unfolds.

Incantation is the authentic example of a dance-energy, since the force of individuality, indifferent to personal destiny, is only played on effective acts where the call, the request, the command, constantly calling out , are just the flip side of the ability to receive…now.
