NAfro Dance Artistic Director Casimiro Nhussi, presents “Matope” inspired by the mystic tale from the Makonde people of northern Mozambique and south of Tanzania. Matope, meaning ‘mud’ in Swahili, is the spirit that comes from muddy land in Namaua village who comes out at sunset to pay a visit to the villagers. Its entire body is covered with mud and is unknown to the villagers and therefore it creates fear. Matope dance production examines the fear of living with an unknown spirit.
