Faso Danse Théâtre / Serge Aimé Coulibaly

Simple, complex and all-encompassing like life itself - this is the new work by Serge Aimé Coulibaly. After the challenges of a dark time, he understands "C la vie" as a departure to new vitality; as an impulse to take things into one's own hands again and to celebrate the joys of existence.


The production for vocals, percussion and seven dancers was inspired by the idea of replacing passive persistence with action: Not hope, but believe. Strength instead of power. Community as the highest value.

Serge Aimé Coulibaly combines these ideas with rhythm, movement and pure exuberance. He calls on us to explore together and with relish what makes life worth living.
