I won't coment but I'll let his movements speak for themselves

Fasso Danse Theatre Company

Mister Serge Aime Coulibaly

Before founding in 2002 his dance comapny , Serge Coulibaly spent 8 years with the Burkinabe dance company Feeren where he learned tradional dance technicks, theater and music.

Serge and the rest of company develop modern dance based tradional dance techniques.
They are performing around the world I missed their performance when they came to dkr but hope to one day be able to see them live.

Through the different pieces they present, the theme of the struggling African youth who wants to go away and just away is recurent ( A Bengue), the eternal quest of an imigrant identity is asked through modern and traditional dance (Quand j'etais).

One of his most critically aclaimed piece "Babemba" he pays homage to courageous political figures such as Thomas Sankara,Lumumba and Mandela.

He performed along the side of talented Indian dancerand choreographer Kalpana Raghuraman in an interesting piece called "J'ai pedu mon francais" which develops on the topic of language and its consequences on the social development of an individual.

Troughout his career he's had the opportunity to work with various dancers and choreographers evolving in various forms of dance, he's performed at many European festivals, worked with Australian choreographer and dancer Rachel Swain in an urban piece.
