Impassioned, engaged, modern-day storytelling drawing inspiration from the Africa diaspora.

Ceci n’est pas noire by Alesandre Seutin and Vocab Dance

Seutin narrates the journey of an Afropean woman through dance and physical theatre, spoken word and song. She plunges us into personal memories of her upbringing through the winding roads of Africa and Europe, investigating the complex experience of identity. 

The Sleepwaker by ‘Funmi Adewole

This is the story of a young girl who was never certain if she was asleep when she walked or awake when she slept. With The Sleepwalker, the artist brings us into an emotional and poetic journey between lucid dreams and nightmares.

Skinbox by Ghislaine Dôté and Virtu’o

In these turbulent times of identity politics and fervent international conversations on race, Dôté questions us, sometimes directly, “How does the colour of our skin create our perception of others?” This expressionist performance opens the possibility for each of us to believe (once again) in the utopia of universalism.
