This 48-minute-long documentary delves into the resonant universe of Montréal-based dancer, choreographer, and philosopher Zab Maboungou, of Franco-Congolese origin. For over thirty years, the artist has galvanized the contemporary dance scene with her radically regrounded conception of time, the body, and the self. Maboungou masterfully transforms sites of identity and being, observing and altering the timeless moments that define our place in the world. Her personal and political history, her artistry, and her pioneering research of rhythm cultures are acts of empowerment that have created a sense of place for other African dance artists in Canada and abroad.
