POWER OF PASSION
Our performance: Power of Passion
An inspiring performance by the dance group "Les Genies de Babi" (Ivory Coast) and Eva Aya Dance (Netherlands). Where you will be stimulated by the cheerful live music of Kienou Seydou (Burkina Faso) and the enthusiasm of the dancers. Never before has a complete Coupé Décalé (Ivorian dance style) dance performance been shown in the Netherlands, showcasing the history and culture of this dance style. A true story that focuses on the power of connecting. The story about a dancer from the Netherlands, who travels to Ivory Coast to learn about the culture and dance styles of this country. Here she discovers the power of the slums, where happiness for the little things can be felt every day.
The performance is presented by Eva Scherpenisse, in collaboration with four dancers from the Ivorian dance group Les Genies de Babi. This dance group consists of Stephane Jean-Luc Tehe, Media Thie Bakayoko, Yves Bohui Clement Yoro and Serge Pacome. The performance is accompanied by our live percussionist Kienou Seydou.
