C la vie

A contemporary initiatory journey

With C la Vie Serge Aimé Coulibaly takes his place in a rich tradition and creates a new contemporary initiatory story to explore life and our way of being in the world in 2023.

At the heart of the initiatory journey that is C la Vie is the Encounter – with music, with the other, with reality, with time, with the planet, with the loved one, and so on. The only thing that matters is the event of the encounter and the quest to connect oneself to the world.

C la vie will be a choreographic creation of 75min. for seven dancers, a singer and a percussionist.
