Information on the activity

May 23, 2019 to May 25, 2019

Serge Aimé Coulibaly
Directed with brio by the Burkinabe choreographer Serge Aimé Coulibaly, seven astounding dancers confront the world. Their impassioned dancing recounts the history of the peoples of yesterday and today through the figure of the mythical musician Fela Kuti, the legendary Nigerian superstar incarnating the struggles against power and corruption. In a sweltering nightclub, they combine jazz, funk and Yoruba rhythms to a point of collapse and utter fusion – hip-shaking utopias, a bewitching urban trance. A hymn to resistance in the shamanic temple of Afrobeat.

Length: 1h15 including an intermission
