About This Event
Celebrating the diversity and talent of contemporary African choreographers, Voices of Strength is a moving mixed repertory program that covers a range of dance genres. Correspondances, choreographed by Kettly Noël (Haiti/Mali) and Nelisiwe Xaba (South Africa) is a lively and sophisticated duet that addresses the intimate fabric of friendship while exploring themes of race, culture, and gender. Are there places we do not have the right to explore? And if we do go inside them, what can we do there, what happens to us? The solo work Quartiers Libres, choreographed by Nadia Beugré (Ivory Coast), explores and reveals these forbidden, secluded, secret spaces. Explore the Arts: Free post-performance discussion.
