There is a time at night, just before dawn, where evil demons come out of hiding and push around men they meet for fun.
Doubts that torture into trance, the need to find solidity in a time where every footstep encounters nothing but incertitude, a loss of bearings travelling to the terminus on a private journey… then coming back stronger with an instinctive animal energy and absolutely assured of a will to live.
This is the way of the man, swaying, shaky, but always finding his verticality.
Fadjiri is a pivotal play in Serge Aimé’s work : in this extreme exploration, he found his own personal written language of dance ; urgent, a direct mirror of the labyrinths of thought, with no makeup, no concessions.
« The Burkinabé dancer and choreographer Serge-Aimé Coulibaly has a direct, contagious talent, overflowing with joyous and pugnacious vitality. In this solo called Fadjari, he decides to make his dance the motor for a dive down into the depths of being. »
Télérama Rosita Boisseau
« There are dances which glue you to your seat and then get you flying up to the ceiling, dances where laughter, looks and bodies are as one, dances where the spirit of the dancer is so close to their movements, there are dances like “Fadjiri” where the audaciousness can be applauded ! »
