It's a question that every artist eventually has to ask themselves: Why do art? The Michèle Moss-choreographed Why Dance? Two aims to answer this very question, taking diverse styles, from West African dance to house music, into its choreographic influences.
"Some of my research is in West Africa and Cuba," says Moss. "That's very important to me and close to the bone. It's the way that I move and the way that I like to move with the music also supporting that-- so it's heavy on the percussion."
