Short of breath, panting, bodies shaken by a unconquerable pulse, over a music that spreads from one coast to another and tells us about the world, lucid, whole, with an astounding beauty.
Animal, lascivious, warlike, sensual, contemplative, this energy is, above all, the energy of the revolt and of absolute commitment. It catches emotions, upsets beliefs, reveals our depths.
Fela gives us, with his breath and his respiration, a chaos that you need to cross to explore in ourselves the strength of our own individual liberty.
What do we have to say, what do we have to refuse, today, in this world that is quaking with fear and that is closing itself off more and more ?
