Serge Aimé Coulibaly | Faso Danse (BF) – Kirina
“A stunning spectacle” – The New York Times
Based on his own African background and vision of our current world, Serge Aimé Coulibaly created Kirina, a narrative about contemporary reality in a globalized world. Kirina is not an evocation of a historical event in West African history. The original epic was only a source of inspiration during the creation process, along with many other epic stories and real contemporary facts. Kirina is not a representation of African artists about Africa. It is a performance made by world citizens – a choreographer with African roots and an artistic team, some of whom have an African background – inspired by their own experiences in a globalized world. From all these sources of inspiration, Coulibaly created a show about people adrift, about the what and how of migrations and their influence on society.
