Kalakuta Republik - Faso Danse Theatre / Serge Aimé Coulibaly (Burkina Faso)
t/m Woensdag 09 Augustus 2017
The inspiration for this dance show is Fela Kuti, political activist and founder of the Afrobeat. And yet, Kalakuta Republik is not a danced biography, nor is it music hall. Rather, it is a high-energy show about Africa as part of a globalising world and a spirited research into what artistic engagement can bring about.
The Belgian-Burkinabe choreographer Serge Aimé Coulibaly [Bobo-Dioulasso, 1972] has developed a movement vocabulary for the four women and three men who are regaining ground in Kalakuta Republik. He himself acts as a storyteller/master of ceremony. Coulibaly has worked with Alain Platel, Sidi-Larbi Cherkaoui and others. After a series of performances at Festival d’Avignon Kalakuta Republik will travel to Boulevard.
