“A compelling physical presence, with exquisite control and a wounded gaze that gets under your skin.” —New Yorker

In Yimbégré—”beginning” in Mooré Language—Burkina Faso-born and Brooklyn-based dancer and choreographer Souleymane “Solo” Badolo explores the balance between maintaining roots while beginning again. He and fellow dancer Sylvestre Koffitse Akakpo-Adzaku, along with master drummer Mamoudou Konate, meld athleticism and contemporary movements into a deeply personal dance. African traditions and history help ground the piece and question at what expense of the past we owe to the future. Badolo is a 2016 Bessie Award-winner for Outstanding Production for his work on Yimbégré.
