African Strings

Choreographer: Bridget L. Moore

 

Awassa Astrige/Ostich (1934)
Choreographer: Asadata Dafora
The ostrich is not the comic bird, burying its head in the sand, as typically portrayed in cartoons, but it is a large, stately and potentially lethal bird should you suffer a blow from one of its powerful legs. The ostrich commands our respect, and in this portrayal, a warrior imitates the graceful but powerful movements of the King of the birds.
