An inclusive and committed energy to testify to exiled and displaced bodies.
Salia Sanou, major figure of sub-Saharan African contemporary dance scene, knows well the meaning of working in a refugee camp. What is the power of dance, in order to relieve bodies and to fight against a mediatized image of prostration? Enlightened by Beckett’s works about seclusion and alterity, “Du désir d’horizon” is a very strong piece for eight dancers that pushes to overflow the force of its topicality.
