Who is Emmanuel ‘Mani’ Obeya? Willi Dorner, a fixture of the Viennese dance scene, had long conversations with Obeya, which evolved into this solo for the Nigerian­ born dancer, singer songwriter and choreog­rapher educated in the UK. Obeya has had an outstanding career as a dancer, including as a soloist with Liz King at Volksoper Vienna and as a guest dancer for the Forsythe Company. As a singer, he is famous for his work with Viennese band Sofa Surfers. He currently performs in Doris Uhlich’s Gootopia and has celebrated interna­tional successes with his own works. In this piece by Dorner, Mani Obeya gives insights into his life and art.
