Voices of Strength is a two-program “mini-festival” celebrating the stylistic diversity and talent of contemporary dance and theater by women from Africa. From dance rooted in tradition, to cutting edge performance that makes satirical use of classical conventions, the five choreographers employ humor, irony, poignancy and power to reference personal obstacles as well as political and social themes, as they articulate women’s struggles toward empowerment.
"'Correspondances' pushes the boundaries of theatre and dance, mixing elements of both forms until it shatters the very idea of form itself.” – NYTheatre.com
