Choreography by: Vanessa Tamburi

Music by: Uhuru Republic

Video design by: Nassos Chatzopoulos

With MuDa Africa dancers

Duration: 23 min


The Italian Embassy continues with the Uhuru Republic project in collaboration with MuDa Africa and FLUSSO dance project. A new dance choreography entitled LOST RIGHTS created by Vanessa Tamburi with the original music of Uhuru Republic will premiere at the Time 2 Dance 2019 festival @ Nafasi Art Space, Dar Es Salaam on September 20th, and @ Rafiki Centre, Bagamoyo on September21st.

Italian and Tanzanian Artists speak a universal artistic language and they have found a strong interplay between the two expressive worlds.

The choreography articulates a few sketches of the life of children and women in Africa: stories of lost rights and dignity. The piece is inspired by “The sky of the last ones (Il cielo degli ultimi)”, a book that collects articles written by MARIA GRAZIA CUTULI, an Italian reporter killed in Afghanistan in 2001. Her reporting brought her to Africa, the continent that she loved the most, then to Afghanistan, Pakistan and the Middle East. Her articles cover stories of life, and interviews with witnesses. Tales of women, children and war: "those that we forget because we do not belong to.”

The piece is also in memory of the 70th anniversary of Universal Declaration of Human Rights just passed on Dec.10th 2018.

“The Declaration has been one of the most constructive advances of ideas in human history. But today, that progress is under threat. We still have a long way to go, and too many of our leaders seem to have forgotten these powerful and prophetic words. We need to rectify that, not just today, not just on the 70th anniversary, but every day, every year”. (By Michelle Bachelet)
