The dancer and choreographer Koffi Kôkô is considered one of the most important co-founders of the modern African dance scene. In his home country of Benin, he is a high dignitary of the Voudou religion. His workshop, La Cérémonie, focuses on the relationship to one’s own body, on personality and individual expressiveness, as well as on the symbolism of gestures in African dance. The repetition of steps and movements in interaction with the music allows for a holistic, lived experience of dance. Dancing outside in the direct and actual experience of nature – earth and stones underfoot, trees as resonators of music, the sound of the wind – opens a space for new experiences. Space for reflection as well as exchange with each other and with Koffi support the process of understanding. Dance as a physical and spiritual experience and as communication with oneself, with nature, the gods and society.
