Voices of Strength: Program I

Part of Voices of Strength: Contemporary Dance and Theater by Women from Africa

Correspondances—Kettly Noël (Mali & Haiti) and Nelisiwe Xaba (South Africa)

Equal parts theater, dance, and storytelling, this raucous yet intimate duet explores race, culture, and gender and is “nothing less than mesmerizing” (NYTheatre.com).

Quartiers Libres—Nadia Beugré (Côte d’Ivoire)

Nadia Beugré (formerly with the stunning Compagnie TchéTché) offers a commanding solo with interactive sound design illuminating the struggle between cultural boundaries and personal freedom.
