This event is free and open to all!
Inspired by the contrast in the paces of life between his native home of Burkina Faso and his adopted home of New York City, Souleymane Badolo’s Dance my life is a celebration that crosses boundaries to highlight the similarities of what we all experience. In the fast-paced world of the present, there is a sense of urgency to accomplish as much as possible as fast as possible. Yet, people everywhere still feel and think about many of the same things – including work, family, prayer, joy, and sadness. This commonality of the human experience is at the center of Dance my life.
For River To River, Dance my life will be performed at Pier 15, where the openness of its East River backdrop is an ideal setting for a dance that celebrates our shared similarities in life experiences that we all feel.
