Kenyan dancer and choreographer, Fernando Anuang’a, returns to the Alliance Française stage with his new choreography ‘Romo’ (Luo for ‘meeting’). Renowned for his shows A journey into the future and Indo-Masai dance, Anuang’a teams up with the Ohanglaman Makadem (on nyatiti and kalimba) and the guitarist Isaac Gem to present a meeting of tradition and contemporary dance and music.
Anuang’a is part of a new generation of Kenyan contemporary choreographers developing a new dance language rooted in African dance and culture.
A unique spectacle where traditional Luo music and the timbre of Makadem’s voice accompany the undulating movements of Anuang’a.
