Sowetos Finest 2

Une danse forte, vivante

Les Soweto’s Finest présentent la « version longue » de Ishbuja, créée il y a quelques mois à l’occasion du festival Suresnes Cités Danse.

Les cinq artistes du Soweto’s Finest définissent le "Ishbuja" comme un style, une esthétique, avec une conscience claire de la supériorité de cette danse sur les autres. Elle met en scène tout le corps, le visage est expressif grimaçant comme un masque traditionnel, la voix, le souffle, les sifflets ...tout est vivant.
Les influences sont traditionnelles et l'interprétation résolument moderne. Les Soweto's Finest se sentent investis d’une mission qu'ils peuvent accomplir à travers leur danse.

La Mouche, Théâtre Saint-Genis-Laval
