Tidiani N'Diaye


Tidiani N’Diaye, who studied dance in Bamako and then in France, takes up the thread of her African story through wax fabric, a material celebrated the world over today. A symbolic source of misunderstanding, wax fabric poses the question of cultural authenticity and identity that the choreographer offers in the form of the language of dance in a tailor-made duet.

In the framework of festival LEGS @ Charleroi danse
