WAKATT, the new creation by Serge Aimé Coulibaly, is part of a body work that examines daily reality and social changes through a dance language that starts from internal violence, human instinct, urgency and the need to express oneself, to say something concrete through the body.

WAKATT is a reflection on the fear-filled contemporary era we live in.

At a time when nationalism is on the rise in most parts of the world, the starting point of this new creation is “the fear of the other“. The one who is arriving, the on who is here, the one that they tell us will take our place, our job, our house.
