A surreal journey interweaving the politics of Mozambique's colonial past and its present through the lens of magical realism. The Sound of Masks uses the ancient masked Mapiko dance to tell the story of Mozambique's history of war. Atanásio Nhussi, a compelling storyteller and legendary Mapiko dancer, takes us on a visually dramatic journey, blurring the lines between the real and the imaginary. Using the body as archive, we experience the ugliness of war through the beauty of dance.
