What it’s like to not belong to the dominant group 

With TOBAN dance isn’t just movement; it’s a voice of resistance and resilience. This new creation by choreographer Mohamed Yusuf Boss – under the moniker  X_YUSUF_BOSS – takes you on a journey to the complexities of experiencing unequal opportunities.  

Furthermore, TOBAN explores the idea that you can always be who you want to be; except outside forces strive to limit and mold you. Like the legendary James Baldwin once emphatically said: ‘You have to choose who you are and force the world to deal with you, not with its idea of you.’  

TOBAN initially started as a deep seated research of the personal stories of Mohamed himself, the performers and the kids who participated in Mohamed’s previous project HIDDEN. These stories – collected during exchanges in Groningen,The Netherlands and Katlehong, South Africa, make up the emotional fuel for TOBAN. The talented cast of six dancers – three Dutch and three South African – bring these stories to life on stage.    

TOBAN invites you to participate in an intimate exploration of what it means to not belong to the dominant group.
