Kounfetaga (Wandering)

Compagnie Tamadia

Burkina Faso

Toronto Premiere

Kounfetaga means wandering in the Bambara, Dioula and Mandinka languages. Based on a simple question, What is the worst thing that ever happened to you?, the choreographer draws on his personal experience of grief – the passing of his child – and embodies it in a choreographic piece.

Kounfetaga is a choreographed reflection on the human spirit and the strength it takes to get through the hardest moments in our lives.
