Coloured Swan 2: Eldorado


Coloured Swan 2: Eldorado

With Coloured Swans Moya Michael makes a series of solo’s in which she questions how our various imposed identities influence our bodies and how we move, speak and sing. Classified as a “coloured” person in Apartheid South Africa, Moya invites artists from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds to join her in this quest. Together they share their personal stories in order to confront and intertwine the complexity of their experiences into one overarching 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 – Eldorado by Moya Michael and David Hernandez is based on the personal story of an immigrant performer of mixed Latino and other backgrounds. This life story serves as a springboard to a story of “hybridization” and “in-between identity”. Eldorado, the mythical city of gold, serves as a metaphor for all the quests towards the promised land. This is a multidisciplinary show. A hybrid form that combines dance, theater, music and image, as mixed as its creators.
