“ The point of departure is a dancer’s bedroom in Bamako: a disorder where traces of a lived life are accumulated and scattered. Outside: the streets of Bamako. Same accumulation of diverse objects, of garbage, anarchy of signs and damaged streets. Why this disorder?
Which problems does it reflect? How could one succeed to develop there; to give form to his or her life, to contest the conditions?
The dance expresses a correspondence between the personality of the artist and his chaotic environment.” Jean Loius Sagot Duvauroux
