Live Artery: Buudou, BADOO, BADOLO and BARACK work-in-progress
Presenters RSVP here
New York Live Arts 3rd Floor Studio
Born in Burkina Faso, choreographer and performer Souleymane Badolo’s African heritage is a driving force in his work. The evening will include a new work guided by the Gurunsi divination system bagger, a ritual where form and structure are suggested through the meaning inherent in thrown cowrie shells. Also on the program, Buudou, BADOO, BADOLO is inspired by Badolo’s rich family legacy as it traces the journey of his great-great-grandfather; the lessons his father taught him; and the responsibility he feels to his own son about their ancestry.
BARACK will premiere at New York Live Arts on April 25th, 2013.
Buudou, BADOO, BADOLO premiered on April 21, 2012 at The Gatehouse of Harlem Stage.
