The play is a reflection on the invention of a renewed Africa that finds in its different processes of "deconstruction" the path to progress, free from prejudice.

The work establishes a dialogue between the old and the new and proposes other universes where the re- signification is used as a proposal for continuity.

This creation is also an alert for the fragilities arising from the lack of a deep knowledge and consequent devaluation of the diversified inherited asset.

In addition to the presentations in the country, the CDC has so far performed in 15 countries and 30 cities in Africa, America, Europe and Asia.

The company founded in 1991 by the dancer and choreographer, Ana Clara Guerra Marques, is a member of the UNESCO International Dance Council and has a history of hundreds of shows in Angola and abroad, with about 26 original works.
