Olivier Tarpaga attended Dialogue De Corps Festival at the Center for Choreographic Development (CDC La Termitiere) in December 2012. It was a scaled down festival this year primarily featuring West African choreographers as well as works-in-progress. This video highlights short excerpts from the festival with highlights from Senegalese choreographer Fatou Cisse and Burkinabe Choreographer Serge Aime Coulibaly/Faso Danse Theatre.  This video is dedicated to Djeneba Kone who was killed in a car accident in Mali immediately following this performance. You can hear her amazing voice at the end of this video, as she was an important voice in Faso Danse Theatre’s new work.  Dialogue De Corps is directed and founded by Salia Sanou and Seydou Boro.  The CDC continues to be a hotbed for the training and research of contemporary dance and we look forward to next year’s festival in December 2012.
