“BLACK” physically reflects the violence and emancipation of being black in today’s world. A body that narrates, challenges and disturbs, that is both wounded and celebrated. In his choreography, dancer Oulouy embodies this struggle for recognition, equality and respect of Black people, referring to episodes in recent history such as the #blacklivesmatter movement or the murder of George Floyd. It is a dance chronicle of the freedom movement and plays cleverly, skilfully and passionately with a choreographic repertoire inspired by the main urban styles of the African continent and the USA, such as Coupé-Décalé, Azont, Ndomboló, Afrohouse and Krump.
Direction, choreography and performance: Oulouy
