Since the 1990s, contemporary dance has become a fixture of the African cultural landscape, to the point of becoming a real part of the continent's cultural heritage. The transmission of works from this repertoire by a new generation of dancers is at the heart of this programme; its three shows have all left a mark on their era and won the Prix Découverte RFI at the Choreographic Encounters of Africa and the Indian Ocean, an itinerant biennale dedicated to creation from the continent.
With their reinterpretation of this piece influenced by urban culture and which questions the order of the world, Nina Kipré and Nadia Beugré, who also perform in the show, pay homage to the late choreographer Béatrice Kombé, the politically-active founder of the Tché-Tché company.
