Israeli dance troupe Mayumana – which combines dance, song and percussion – presented its "Momentum" show at the German opera house, in an evening which launched a tour of dozens of performances in Europe.


This is the first time that the 16-year-old troupe tries to conquer the German-speaking market, after gaining international success in other places around the world.


"It's an energetic, vital band, a cultural melting pot, exotic, modern, yet filled with art and culture," says Dieter Semmelmann, one of Germany's leading agents who organized Mayumana's current tour.


The German audience, which is used to traditional cultural performances, welcomed Mayumana with a lot of enthusiasm and cooperated with the troupe members in the segments in which viewers are asked to take part in the creation of the performance.


The German press praised the Israeli group as well, stressing that Mayumana proves there is life in Israel which goes beyond the conflict with the Palestinians. "It's a show filled with energy, wild chaos, but with perfect choreography," wrote the Berliner Zeitung daily.
