FASO DANSE THÉÂTRE / SERGE AIMÉ COULIBALY

Edinburgh Theatre Festival 2019

A dizzying fusion of dance, music and revolution, inspired by the supercharged music and scandalous life of Fela Kuti.

Pioneering dancer and choreographer Serge Aimé Coulibaly takes Kuti’s life and beliefs as inspiration for this visually stunning, hypnotic dance work for seven performers that draws lines from African revolution in the 1970s to today’s political resistance. In Coulibaly’s dynamic, demanding choreography, dance becomes a symbol of transformation, a ceaseless march towards ultimate freedom. Kalakuta Republik is a carnival of insurrection.
