Kettly Noël (Festival d'Avignon 2017)


A Haitian-born and Bamako-based dancer, choreographer and actress, Kettly Noël is the director of the Festival Dense Bamako Danse and of the cultural centre Donko Seko, a space for training, choreographic creation, and for the development of contemporary dance as a tool for socialization in Mali. She is currently developing various projects, from group pieces to installations (Documenta Kassel, July 2017).

July 9-15th, 2017
Festival d’Avignon – Théâtre Benoît XII

A woman tries to find balance between her two personalities. A man enters, seemingly determined: what does he want, and will he let himself be caught up in her problems? A constant game then begins between the protagonists, that brings them closer together, sometimes in surreal ways.
