Kilimanjaro perfomance photos
Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain in Africa; the Maasai are among the tallest people in Africa.
Red symbolizes the volcano, blood, warriors, danger and bravery.
The Maasai believe that each person is sent a guardian Spirit, give to them during the birth ceremony. In this choreography, the Maasai implore their guardian Spirits to keep Kilimanjaro inactive for many generations – which will maintain peace in their territory, and in the world.
This dramatic, energetic piece features a stunning blend of both traditional and contemporary West and East African movement. It is a masterful composition, profoundly influenced by Africa’s powerful primeval forces.
