Germaine Acogny | Senegal / France
Mon élue noire-sacre #2 (My Black Chosen One)
Mother of contemporary African dance
“When it comes to temperament, bravery and language, the dancer and choreographer Germaine Acogny, an important figure in African dance, has them by the shedload” — Télérama, France
Thrilling Hong Kong début
French choreographer Olivier Dubois, known for his powerful and provocative pieces, created this work especially for Germaine Acogny, seeking to draw the soul of Africa embedded within her into a revelatory encounter with composer Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring. With Dubois’ drive to go beyond conventional boundaries and Acogny’s explosive performance, this show stunningly reshapes previous perceptions of dance.
