Faso Danse Théâtre

“One of the most engaged choreographers of its generation, Serge Aimé Coulibaly casts a keen and kindly eye on the world, to inform dance that drinks from every spring.”
– La Biennale de la Danse Lyon – 

The dance company Faso Danse Théâtre was founded in 2002 (Bobo Dioulasso/Brussels) by Serge Aimé Coulibaly. Serge Aimé Coulibaly explores complex themes with the desire to give a real positive dynamic to the youth. Humanity must learn from the mistakes of the past. Serge Aimé’s dance is positive, starting from negativity to activate the positive in people.

Throughout his different creations, the Belgian-Burkinabe choreographer has developed an original, rich and powerful contemporary artistic expression, rooted in African cultures and articulated around strong themes, where dance is above all emotion. His sincerity, his political and historical questions, make him a committed choreographer. Each time, his performances are created partly in Africa and partly in Europe.

For Serge Aimé, dance is a social commitment. He questions the daily reality and the social evolutions by sharing this research with his public. In his work, he explores the interface between individual personality and commitment, the tension between what the individual feels and what the commitment of a better world imposes on the individual. On the basis of his commitment, he developed a creative process based on the principle of duality: every movement that crosses the body has an opposite. Each form of energy is accompanied by a second form. This brings the body and mind into a state in which intuition and urgency take over.
