Nadine Baboy (BE)
Nadine Baboy is a Belgian-Congolese artist with a passion for performance. As a dancer, choreographer, actor and poet, she takes inspiration from artistic and cultural cross-over. She has previously worked on various dance theatre projects that blend movement and word, including KVS and la Monnaie’s musical L’Homme de La Mancha. Her passion for dance translates into a fusion between hip hop, dancehall and contemporary afro-styles. Her powerful texts broach striking themes and link her African roots to her European base.
Nadine Baboy (BE): Désintégration Culturelle
Désintégration Culturelle is a hybrid work that brings together poetry, music and dance. The idea is to take the audience on an artistic journey where words, movement and music speak in unison. The theme revolves around cultural heritage and challenges the notion of identity and cultural belonging. A contemporary approach to mixing is reflected by the choice of artistic disciplines put forward in this show. From afro dance to flamenco, krump, dancehall, stepping, hip-hop and house dance, urban dance styles are intertwined and blended together.
She won the first Brussels Bijou for this project. Watch a teaser of the project here.
