Outdoor Dance Performance: Souleymane Badolo's "Yimbégré"

When: Sat., Sept. 29, 6 p.m. 2018

In the Mooré language, yimbégré means “beginning.” For the powerful dancer, choreographer, and Bard faculty member Souleymane “Solo” Badolo, born in Burkina Faso and currently based in Brooklyn, to begin again is to exercise personal freedom—yet often at the expense of familial roots. In this deeply personal work, Badolo pits ancestry against aspiration to explore the delicate balance between maintaining ties and seeking new homes free from creative and political intolerance.
