Souleymane Badolo Practice/Repertory: A New Voice in African Dance
Souleymane ‘Solo’ Badolo is a Brooklyn-based choreographer and dancer born in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. He started his professional career as a dancer for the DAMA, a traditional African dance company. In 1993, he founded his own Burkina Faso-based troupe, Kongo Ba Téria, which fuses traditional African dances with western contemporary dance and continues to tour internationally. Souleymane has danced with world-renowned contemporary African dance company Salia ni Seydou, worked with French choreographers Elsa Wolliaston and Mathilde Monnier, and performed with the National Ballet of Burkina. He and Kongo Ba Téria are featured in the widely-screened documentary Movement (R)evolution Africa which documents the continent’s emergent experimental dance scene.
The evening will also include introductions to Eiko Otake, who will teach a Guest Residency course in the spring - Private Body/Public Place (letter of interest is required; site-specific performances in April) and Neil Greenberg, who will teach a repertory in the spring (no audition required).
