In It is like a Finger Pointing a Way to the Moon Moya Michael is searching for the movement of different unyielding languages.

After the celebrated Coloured Swan trilogy and Outwalkers, choreographer Moya Michael proposes to dance nearby the guardians of words, movements, and rhythms she encountered in South-Africa and Namibia. After meeting with !Amace, Be and their Ju/'Hoansi family, she collaborates with a group of invited artists to create the performance It's like a finger pointing a way to the moon.
 

Together, they delve into the movement within different unyielding languages. Guided by Bruce Lee’s allusion to an old Zen Buddhist wisdom in his seminal film Enter the Dragon, “Don’t concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory!”, she proposes to move with what we cannot fathom. To disappear in order to preserve the words that precede us, that never left us. To transform in order to keep what came before us.
