Rollstuhlfahrer*innen Relaxed Performance Sign language

The words violence, emfancipation, pain and self-empowerment emphasise the reality of being black in today’s world: In «BLACK», the dancer Oulouy embodies the struggle for recognition, equality and respect of Black people, referring to episodes of recent history, such as the #blacklivesmatter movement.

Cleverly, skilfully and passionately, movements from the main urban styles of the African continent and the United States, such as Coupé-Décalé, Azont, Ndomboló, Afrohouse and Krump, are used to depict the history of the freedom movement. Always in a state of unrest and discomfort and with the potential to gradually influence and reshape the world.
