Reflections on Foofwa d’Imobilité
The Making of Spectacles


WhatsonSA Magazine (Capetown, South Africa)
«In his communication with the audience and one on one (in my brief interactions with him), he comes across as very open and unguarded, a quality which is extremely rare, specially from a ground breaking artist. I see Foofwa as a fearless innovator of dance and am grateful to have experienced these performances live.»

Taking Chances/Making Choices
The Making of Spectacles


JOMBA! KHULUMA, South Africa
«The 2010 JOMBA! Contemporary Dance Experience has been a festival of collaborations. Foofwa d’ Imobilite’s The Making of Spectacles was a different and exciting collaboration with the audience in the selective creation of the dance-piece, influenced by Merce Cunningham’s ‘chance’ theory, using a democratic voting system rather than flipping a coin.
What appealed to me is the way in which Foofwa and his dancers Ruth Childs, Anja Schmidt and Filibert Tologo played with the concept of choices. (…) Beautiful, bravely risky, yet classically choreographic and strongly political that’s The Making of Spectacles.»

Swiss Contemporary Dance Days – Focus on Tiziana Arnaboldi and Foofwa d’Imobilité
The Making of Spectacles


Explore Dance
«Foofwa d’Imobilité uses tradition while both mocking and somehow extending it. I’m not sure how he accomplishes this feat, but it must be in part because he and his dancers are exquisitely trained—how else can you poke fun at dance? d’Imobilité’s years performing with the Cunningham troupe surely gave him experience and confidence. But there is something more here. Call it play in the fields of the masters. Call it illusion in the Land of Oz. Call it whatever you want, but go see his choreography.»
