Based on the adventure of coupé-décalé and the story of James Carlès, South African choreographer Robyn Orlin has produceda solo for a remarkable dancer, a devoted researcher into the emergence of choreographic expressions by the Africandiaspora in the West. Based on coupé-décalé movements, a combination of Congolese rumba, hip hop and Caribbean music that appeared in Paris at the turn of the century, somewhere between fiction and reality this piece deals with the combination of humour and humanity that makes up any personal story taking place across several continents. Mirroring society, history and political challenges, this dance mostly joyfully reveals the dramas of the colourful line running through Euro
