Irish Arts Center — Mufutau Yusuf: Òwe
April 21-24, 2022

Seen previously in New York at 92Y’s Fridays at Noon series and at La MaMa with Irish Modern Dance Theatre, the thrilling, ascendant contemporary dancer Mufutau Yusuf makes his full-length NYC choreographic debut with the solo performance Òwe.

Meaning “proverb” in the Yoruba language, Òwe uses an electric movement vocabulary of both traditional and modern form to decode the Irish-Nigerian artist’s personal and ancestral identities. Four performances only.
