In traditional dancing, there is a sense of intention present in the dialogue between the feet and the ground. Without this resolve, tribal steps can become tainted by a feeling of uncertainty. This vital link, forgotten by modern dance, is fascinating to me, and merits our attention. Though this workshop, I hope that ‘’movers’’ will rediscover bodies that curve, and knees that dare to bend further, tremors and ripples, PowWow dances and movements from Doudoumba… something wild and yet very current. All this accompanied by the percussion of Mohamed N’diane. Come dance!
