Kalakuta Republik

Mon 4 - Tue 5 Nov 2019

A globalised Africa takes centre stage in this ‘thrillingly inventive act of choreographic rebellion’ (Le Monde) by Belgian-Burkinan choreographer Serge Aimé Coulibaly.

Inspired by Fela Kuti, the political activist and inventor of Afrobeat, Kalakuta Republik uses an infectious and fresh energy to question the impact that an artist can create in their society. Throughout the work, the body exists as a centre for resistance – whether this is through power, sexuality, violence or fear.

Examining authority and frustration through a ‘careening, veering, chaotic political awakening set to music’ (A Younger Theatre), this is dance which is equal parts brutal, bold, fierce and beautiful.
