Facing African Dance Creation

By Lys Stevens Series C + Face 2 Face

For this third edition of the Face 2 Face series, Cathy Levy, National Arts Centre executive producer of dance, chose to highlight artists “whose lives and stories are rooted in Africa.”


Idiom, by Kemi Contemporary Dance Projects’ Artistic Director Jennifer Dallas of Toronto and Bienvenue Bazié of Burkina Faso, premiered in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, this past December and had its Canadian premiere last weekend in Kitchener, ON.

By Kathleen Smith Longer Than A Shadow Kemi Contemporary Dance Projects

Is it just me or does anyone else feel that too many dance shows are formally presented before they are quite ready?
