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.
