Moving in November, an annual contemporary dance festival in Helsinki, features Dutch dancer & choreographer Cherish Menzo’s performance DARKMATTER. Cherish Menzo and her onstage partner Camilo Mejía Cortés look for ways to detach their bodies from the way they are perceived and the daily reality in which they move. Among other things, they look up to the sky, at dark matter and at black holes that meet and collide to give birth to a new, (afro)futuristic and enigmatic body. Having the desire to bring multiple voices to the audience, in every city the performance is shown Menzo forms a Distorted Rap Choir, inviting people from the African diaspora to record a rap anthem that becomes part of the performance.

Our Head of Programme, Malin Bergström highly recommends the performance “if you have yet to see this work, you must absolutely go and see it!”

Cherish Menzo’s participation in Moving in November is supported by The Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux.
