Mon Elue Noire (My Black Chosen One): Sacre #2

Part of (B)old

An explosive new work from the mother of contemporary African dance, Germaine Acogny.

Created specially for her by Ballet du Nord provocateur Olivier Dubois, this scenically minimalist, emotionally maximalist solo performance draws deep from Acogny’s prodigious well of experience.

As the performance opens to the strains of Le Sacre du Printemps (The Rite of Spring), a soft glow pulses and the smell of pipe tobacco wafts through the darkness.

Confined atop a brutally lit platform of black walls, Acogny confronts the audience with her furious presence, fearlessly carving out a space for her artistry in the deepest trenches of Western modernism.
