Serge Aimé Coulibaly


How can we be open to different visions for the future? For Belgian-Burkinabe choreographer Serge Aimé Coulibaly, the universal language of dance tackles complex issues, calling our certainties into question. Bringing together movement and rhythm, the energy of dance feeds into our hopes and sets them free. In his new, African-inspired piece, Wakatt, Coulibaly focuses on humankind's endeavours to create a sustainable future, composing a rich, multifaceted work, featuring ten dancers and the three musicians of the Magic Malik Orchestra, performing Afro-jazz live, in what is a truly electrifying performance.
