by Horacio Macuacua
Zumbakuakua is a dance style that is born out of the curiosity for reinventing warming up the body in a joyful way and a great vibe. It is inspired by traditional African dances, afro dance and all influences Horacio has picked up in his career. The class is hot and sweaty, the dance steps and moves are aerobic, rooting deeply, creating an invocation of your own spirit. A treat which has become an inspiring dance formula to be shared once more, and more.
The Mozambican dancer and choreographer is the artistic director of the dance company which bears his name. Horacio Macuacua develops projects that aim to go beyond established forms. Flexibility of mind and availability to catch the moment translate movement instantly into compositions that are complex and elaborated, displaying depth and playfulness, darkness and light. Each composition is a journey to reinvent and transform within the parameters of meaning.
He has carried out his projects: COMUM, Canais, Orobroy, Stop! (1st Prize and Puma Creative Prize at Danse l’Afrique Danse Festival 2010), Smile If You Can!, Fighting room, Convoy, Paradise is not in the sky! and Theka.
Horacio has collaborated with choreographers Panaibra Gabriel Canda/CulturArte, Cristina Moura, Thomas Hauert, George Khumalo, Wim Vandekeybus/Última Vez … and David Zambrano, considering him his maestro and mentor.
As a teacher he has given classes and workshops in France, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Holland, Cyprus, USA, South Korea, Brazil, South Africa, Mozambique, etc….
