What does it mean as a fist generation Somali to grow up in the Netherlands? What happens when histories meet?
Choreographer Mohamed Yusuf Boss presents an ode to man that doesn’t always feel whole, but wants to be.
‘People are trapped in history and history is trapped in them.’
In a medial dance performance, he explores the fractured self. He makes the desire to be a complete person tangible in a dance solo. Proceeding from the view that one’s history is not in the past, but something that is stored inside you, he explores his bi-cultural background through dance languages, hip-hop and the traditional Somali dance Jaandheer.
