Event Notes


This performance of Maamawi, for the entire family, features projected animation of the narrative of the seven prophesies while we witness costumed dancers, wearing motion capture suits underneath, bring featured animal to life. The animals tell the story right before our eyes alongside the dancers. Sure to bring wonder and magic to your InFrinGinG Dance Festival experience.

You’re invited into our vision of the future. The world has been transformed through fire, revived through water, and humankind has been gifted the ability to experience life through the lessons of the Heart.
