In 2015, Black Box Dance Company, Holstebro, Denmark, and MuDa Africa Dance, Dar es-Salaam, Tanzania, began an artistic collaboration. This collaborative project was initiated by artistic leaders, Marie Brolin-Tani and Rachel Kessi, and founded upon their multual ambition to build a long-term artistic relationship. One of the aims was to explore the similarities and disparities between African and European modern dance traditions, as well as exploring the artistic possibilities within such a meeting.
As a part of this collaboration MuDa Africa Dance is visiting Denmark with the dance ensemble "6 Power"

Black Box Dance Company, Holstebro, Danmark, og Muda Africa Dance, Dar es-Salaam, Tanzania, startede i 2015 et kunstneriske samarbejdsprojekt. Projektet blev initieret af de to kunstneriske ledere, Marie Brolin-Tani og Rachel Kessi, der begge havde ambitionen om at opbygge et langsigtet samarbejde. Et af formålene var at udforske ligheder og uligheder mellem afrikansk og europæisk moderne dansetradition, samt at undersøge de kunstneriske muligheder i et sådan møde.
Som led i dette samarbejde er MuDa Africa og Danseensemblet "6 Power" nu på besøg Danmark.
