BOW’T TRAIL Retrospek

BOW’T TRAIL Retrospek

Choreography: Rhodnie Désir

BOW’T TRAIL Retrospek is a conversation between the present and the past, voiced through the channelling body of Rhodnie Désir, where more than 130 testimonies collected on 7 lands of the Americas still reside. Rhodnie Désir, driven by a desire and a need to transcend her origins, has immersed herself in the African cultures and rhythms of peoples deported to the Americas. On stage and accompanied by two maestro musicians, she is supported by these majestic rhythms, while her body is mysteriously enveloped by video projections and memories connecting the audience to the universe of her travels.

The duration of BOW’T TRAIL Retrospek is 75 minutes. The piece will be presented as a double bill with M(other).
