This week I am in Abidjan to give some workshops around the materiality of the body and its movements and to perform Fugen as part of the 5th festival international de danse « Un pas vers l’avant » organised by Compagnie Ange Aoussou.

The Goethe Institut is responsible for bringing me to Abidjan, and it was Henrike Grohs who originally proposed this. Incidentally, Henrike also brought Das Helmi there earlier this year for Ivoire Marionette. Henrike was one of 22 murdered by Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb on March 13th this year.

Supported by Benni Schroeter for lights and sound, I perform Fugen at the Goethe-Institut, Abidjan this Saturday, 17th September at 19:10h. There are also performances there and at Institut Français by companies from Côte d’Ivoire, Benin, Togo, Burkina Faso, and Mali.
