Cassa Cassa : Dance meeting of Africa and the diaspora( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

From Elodie Lefebvre's website: "Germaine Acogny, a leading figure in contemporary African dance and the founder of the École des Sables in Senegal, has longed for many years to bring together choreographers from Africa and the diaspora. In 2007, the École des Sables invited for the first time thirty-five choreographers and musicians of African origin for the project 'Recontres dansées de l'Afrique et de sa diaspora' (Danced Encounters of Africa and its Diaspora). This remote place became for two weeks the site for exceptional exchange. Each artist who has accepted the invitation brings his or her own personal universe. They unfold it under the others' gaze, in a quest for the nature of the links that unite them with Africa; they put it into a dialogue with their partners' universes, searching for the mutations of form and meaning which their dancing has undergone. It is with a desire for communion and sharing that these unique trajectories meet at the École des Sables; it is between the bush and the ocean that they reunite with their collective history."

Germaine Acogny interviewed by Mamadou Niang( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Germaine Acogny discusses her artistic career and her most recent piece, Tchouraï, in the light of her belief that one must remain true to oneself and one's own cultural roots while being open to multi-cultural and multi-racial influences. Among the topics she discusses are the definition of the contemporary; the role of technique, and the distinction between technique and style; her collaboration with choreographer Sophiatou Kossoko on Tchouraï; the symbolic meanings attached to Tchouraï, and the audience's reception of the piece; L'Ecole des Sables, the training center she has founded in Toubab Dialaw with Helmut Vogt; her sense of the artist as interpreter; and her place in African modern dance. Her performance of Tchouraï is recorded on *MGZIA 4-6795 Germaine Acogny and Vincent Sekwati Koko Mantsoe

They discuss their choreographic approaches, Mantsoe's strongly influenced by his roots in a family of shamans, Acogny's by her concept of the close connection of African dance and the natural world. Acogny also discusses dance training and transmission at her center in Toubab Dialaw. Both have experience in dance education, Mantsoe with the Moving into Dance company in South Africa, Acogny as artistic director of the now defunct school Mudra Afrique, instigated by Maurice Béjart, in Senegal. They discuss the spiritual dimension of their work. A question-and-answer session follows. The recording stops before the end of the program
