Paraya Diallo plays his music for the people and, above all, with them. It is easy to groove into his music, it is intensely sonorous, alive. The songs are characterized by deep spirituality, love for people, and confidence in life. If love, liveliness, and confidence can be felt by the people listening and dancing, then […]

Kuyum Collaborative

Kuyum Collaborative kuyumarts 2023

ONE or togetherness – that is what the Kabiyé word “Kuyum” means. Under this motto, five dancers from different African cultures try out new ways for a Neo-African dance: rapprochements and repulsions, strangeness and familiarity. A stimulating exchange begins! The process of “Kuyum Kollaborativ” brings the five dancers and their dance languages, each shaped by […]

Soliloque dansé

Soliloque dansé kuyumarts 2023

In the dance soliloquy, the body of the dancer Nestor Gahe becomes the medium in which society and the individual meet with all their forces, conflicts and dependencies. What happens when the body parts (individuals) want to follow their own needs, although the whole (the body) has to function? How does cohesion emerge in this […]

I am [NOT] a parrot

I am [NOT] a parrot kuyumarts 2023

We use the word “exotic”, to label something that we cannot label. By calling it that way, we stop confronting ourselves with it. We are comfortable. We move day by day in different ways, and our movements are mostly automatic. I started this piece when I was being compared with a “parrot” by an audience […]

My Dance is an attempt to shift power, a reflection on female sexuality, the erotic self, and patriarchal oppression, as well […]

*The Sys-[tem]*

Noir: The Unknown Life of Claudette Colvin

*The Sys-[tem]* is the stripping of choreographic techniques of their spectacular dimensions to keep only the raw movements in order to slide from a phrase formulation to another dance style with virtuosity (hip hop, Neoclassical, contemporary, afro-contemporary…), in order to be able to retrace the story of a 15 years old girl in the Alabama of […]

My Path

My path, kuyumarts 2023

In this piece, the choreographer blows himself and expresses a brutal agitation. “My Path”. It is the human being in the grip of an existential crisis of orientation. It is the torment, the inner tragedy of setting out on the right path in life, with its disappointments, its resentments. But above all, “My Path”” is […]


“Diekpo” Our Rites kuyumarts 2023

This neo-African dance production is a creative process centred on a ritual practice known as “Dipo” from Krobo land, located in eastern Ghana. It is a female rite of passage. The choreography examines its rituals, looks at its cultural meanings and also negative effects from a post-colonial, feminist perspective. It is worth taking a look […]
