At a time when the entertainment industry is still facing moments of stillness, Batalo East in partnership with breakin convention showcased a motivational dance piece over the weekend at Motiv creators space.
The dance piece was choreographed by Abdul Kinyenya alias Abdanger of Batalo East in Uganda and Jonzi D from breakin Convention UK under the Sub-Saharan project ‘Festival Connect’, which was funded by British Council in Uganda.
Dancers Fahad Kiryowa, Lilian Nabaggala, Derrick, Matrix Bienco and Eric Sama highly conveyed the message of Identity through transition.
A giant spider expressed gaunt features transforming and locating different Identities and movements from different regions.
Technical defects delayed the event but Jonzi D was there to save the day with his Spoken Word Poetry on Identity.
Besides lacking uniformity in body movements as expressed by critics and dance trainers, the dance movement stimulated great admiration of Identity transition.
The works showcased on Sunday was picked up from the showcased creation of 2020 Batalo Dance virtual festival and it has been going on for eighteen days.
