Africa

Africa

A series of concerts and shows on the multiple facets of the African continent in dialogue with the West.

Two weekends celebrating Africa: the first is a three-evening portrait of the great Malian artist Rokia Traoré; and the second, entitled simply Africa, features South African choreographer Robyn Orlin’s show with Camille and Beninese diva Angélique Kidjo, who revisits the Talking Heads album Remain in Light.
