Beyond My Steps

Go behind the scenes with the Contemporary Dance Company of Angola and choreographer Mónica Anapaz to explore concepts of Angolan tradition, culture, memory, and identity.

Through rare archival footage of the 2017 season show of the Contemporary Dance Company of Angola, five dancers interpret tribal dances and costumes, transforming them into contemporary forms and bridging time through movement. Most of the dancers – coming from other provinces of the country – bring memories and traditions with them when moving to the bustling, erratic and frantic reality of the capital city. In Portuguese with English subtitles.

Introduction by director Kamy Lara and co-director/producer Paula Agostinho
