Celia of the CCB has been accepted to present dance at Ange Aoussou's festival launch in Abijan and teach in Burkina Faso.
Celia has been invited to teach as part of the SIDO 2012 at Irene Tassembedo's " Ecole de Danse Edit" (Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso) in July. The CCBdance Project has been accepted to present new work in the festival "Un Pas Vers L'Avant" which will take place in August in Abijan, Cote D'Ivoire organized by Ivoirien African contemporary choreographer Ange Aoussou.
Celia's Weiss Bambara's work is to be shared and she has also been requested to contribute teaching to a week long professional dance stage/formation as part of the festival in Abijan.
This festival and professional formations are important to the new experiments in African contemporary dance made by young artists in West Africa and in particular the Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso and permits us to contribute our work and teaching as well as dialogue with other artists. Participating in this festival is of great importance to our dance company as it will be our first tour presenting work in Africa and teaching.
