A mystic encounter with the forces that build your universe. The silhouette of a non-human. What is a king? Who or what do you surrender to? Molimo is a journey in search of the other through legends and myths, created by movement. It allows a journey, a departure and return, both for the spectator and for the dancers. For this we often lack space in many other contexts.
