[Converse] “Voice, humor, mimicry, compassion – these allow an exchange [between cultures] to happen and they are all evident in this work. It’s a hopeful message that couldn’t be clearer.” Kathleen M. Smith, The Dance Current

Co-presenter: Ottawa Dance Directive | SD10#18

Jennifer Dallas (Canada) and Bienvenue Bazié (Burkina Faso) share a unique artistic sensibility. Together they perform Idiom, a compelling cross-cultural mash up which explores like and unlike cultures in musical, verbal, and movement-based idioms. The program also includes Sous un projecteur, a short solo by Bazié.

This performance is part of Face 2 Face, a series of personal performances created and inspired by experiences of Africa. View the entire lineup here.
