Artist Michel Kouakou travels to Antananarivo and Madagascar
Michel Kouakou will travel to Antananarivo and Diego Suarez, Madagascar from the September 14th-October 4th, 2015. He will be participating in the 11th edition of the i’Trôtra, International Contemporary Dance Festival, to perform his solo dance piece “Victims of Victims” and to do a creative and artistic exchange with Malagasy dancer/choreographers Gaby Saranouffi, Haja Saranouffi, and South African choreographer/dancer Moektsi Koena which is designed to stimulate opportunities for collaboration. This exchange is sponsored, in part, by The Africa Contemporary Arts Consortium and MAPP International Productions , in order to foster creative artist exchanges between artists on the continent and artists in the United States.
As part of his travels, we request that Michel shares his experiences and reflections by posting some thoughts, images and video clips on the website. This way we ensure that he is able to impart his travels and the creative work he has focused on with as many artists and individuals interested in learning more about the compelling field of contemporary arts on the Continent.
