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.
Performance advisory: Subject matter includes grief.
Limited capacity – registration recommended.

In a contemporary dance-romp through a faux-spiritual aquatic Neverland, the characters hilariously attempt to find themselves through dream ballet, cold-pressed juices and romantic scandal.
