Serge Aimé Coulibaly 

  • Dance

“Wakatt” means “our time” and the Burkina Faso-born choreographer Serge Aimé Coulibaly, who is one of the most important artistic voices on the African continent, has placed fear as a defining motif of our present at the centre of his stirring choreography. He explores the omnipresent fear of the Other and of a future marked by great challenges.

The work, which was created in various African and European countries, also addresses Coulibaly’s experiences with the COVID-19 pandemic. Through their dance and body language, which incorporates daily reality and social changes, Coulibaly and his dancers create a community that deals with the challenges of our time.
