In COLOURED SWANS Moya Michael questions how layers of imposed identities change how an artist moves, speaks, sings and what specific spaces their bodies visualise or capture. Moya invites artists from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds to join her in this quest. Together they will share their personal stories in order to confront and intertwine the complexity of their experiences into one overall creation. Each encounter leads to a solo created for and with the artist as one of the swans of COLOURED SWANS.
COLOURED SWAN 2: ELDORADO
Moya Michael / David Hernandez
For the creation of the second solo, Eldorado, Moya cocreates with dancer, performer
and choreographer David Hernandez. Points of departure are David’s experiences as an artist of
Latino ancestry. In Coloured Swan 2: Eldorado we delve into identity and multiculturalism in
contemporary society. Eldorado, the mythical city of gold, serves as a metaphor for all kinds of quests for the promised land.
