One of Europe’s most electrifying dance artists, seen previously in New York with Irish Modern Dance Theatre at La Mama and 92Y’s Fridays at Noon series, Mufutau Yusuf makes his full-length NYC choreographic debut with Òwe—“proverb” in the Yoruba language. Using personal and found archival material as concept, visual design and soundscape, and with a highly-charged amalgam of traditional and contemporary movement, Yusuf seeks to decode his personal identity through the lens of the ancestral.

"When the charismatic Mufutau Yusuf is onstage, it’s hard to look anywhere else"—NEW YORK TIMES
