19-21 Sept 2011.
The performances being staged follow an intense ten-day project organised and hosted by the French Academy dedicated to contemporary performers, dancers and choreographers of African origin.
Eight artists from different African nations have created works born from the dynamism and originality of the typical forms of contemporary dance in Africa, the Maghreb and Sub-Saharan Africa.
The dancers are from Tunisia, Mali, Algeria, South Africa and Madagascar. The goal of the project was to enable African pioneers of contemporary dance to get in touch with the best talents of the new generation, in a prestigious place like the Villa Medici, to work together, discuss and reflect on choreographic creation.
At the end of this residence, the eight artists are showing the result of their work in performances hosted by the Teatro Quirino, Via delle Vergini 7, tel. 066785802.
