Mozongi (Return) is 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 thus 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. For more than three decades, Zab Maboungou/Compagnie Danse Nyata-Nyata has traced the trajectories of a revised and corrected contemporaneity. Zab Maboungou assumes the general and artistic direction of the company, founded in 1987. As its choreographer, and through her renewed art of rhythms and vibrant space, he creates works with powerful gestures that stage the bodies of committed artists of dance and music, both active and meditative, who transform our relationship to time and life.
