A few words about your artistic journey

From urban dances between 1998-2005, I participated in multiple formations with many recognized choreographers such as : Laurence Levasseur, Germaine Acogny, Angelin Preljocaj, Irène Tassembedo, Salia-ni-Seydou and many others. First promotion of professional dancer-interpreter after three years of intensive training at EDIT from 2009-2012.

How long have you been an artist ?

For 15 years ; from 1998, I fell in love with dance but I professionalize myself through various training since 2005.

Why did you apply for this scholarship ? How will the scholarship support you ?

It’s a challenge, just like when I participate in many auditions ; and the distribution network that Africalia can offer to my work.
Given the current situation regarding my canceled dates in Europe, I have to stay active and continue to work.

What are your concrete artistic objectives after this residency ?

My goal is that the choreography that I will propose will be a complete creation, intended only for this project, on a musical style rarely used in contemporary choreographic creations.
