Recontre / The Meeting Point

Performed by Abdoul Mujyambere and Nina Harris
Rwanda / USA

This piece is an exploration of the relationship between two people from two different worlds. It looks at the effects of differences in place, time and culture on a relationship, and how, in spite of those differences, two people can be drawn together. It reveals the reality that this is an ever-mixing world, and that so much of the encounters we face will force us to not only look beyond our differences, but to appreciate them in one another.

Run of the Power

Performed by Street Dancers Company

The small story of a colonized country that believes it has an independence but always ends itself in strengths of power unremittingly … the piece quoted above is a reflexive replica converted by movements showing a thirst for power that everything The world envies and runs after to have certainly what it wants and always remains trapped in the same logic to keep the rhythm in hand by believing that the lower people do not notice anything.
