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 3: Harriet’s reMix – Brussels welcomes many people who are passing through. It’s also a place with a strong historical connection to the African continent, which it continues to maintain and develop through diplomatic and artistic relations. The underbelly of those relations, however, look rather unsavoury at times. In her third Coloured Swan Moya Michael focuses on what really happens at the flipside of this phenomenon.
