Looking Back and Look Forward in Dêgèsbé

Research output: Journal PublicationsPolicy or Profession paperProfession

Abstract

Gestures of "looking back" and "looking forward" in time appear frequently in Dêgèsbé (2016), a 90-minute dance piece choreographed and performed by Seoul-based Burkinabé-Korean dance company Koulé Kan. The performance begins with Emmanuel Sanou, Koulé Kan's choreographer and lead dance from Burkina Faso, patiently brushing his one hand up and down against the other arm while moving his feet to rotate counterclockwise. His tall body and lanky arms, sliced up into shadows and highlights under pin light, remind me of hands of a clock slowly moving backwards.
