Behind Me/Na Tempo/J'Accuse/Contre Poids - T1509906724UK Premiere. A unique and exciting event where Africa meets East London. Stratford Circus plays host to five of the continent’s most significant young dance artists. They include Danse L’Afrique Danse 2008 winner Kaolack, with his provocative solo J’Accuse; Andréya Ouamba and Fatou Cisse’s intimate duet Contre Poids which explores communication across divides; Michel Kouakou’s meditative solo Behind Me, in which he reflects on his history and origins; and Papy Ebotani’s autobiographical solo Na Tempo, in which he combines mundane actions with ritualistic behaviour. Each piece is complemented by a short prelude created in response and performed by East London Dance associate artists: Avant Garde Dance, C-12 Dance Theatre and VOCAB Dance. Food and music in the foyer will round off this inspiring evening. African CrossroadsPerformer Michel Kouakou (Ivory Coast - Behind Me).
