Creative Promise prizewinner, Ivory Coast-born choreographer Michel Kouakou and his company Daara Dance incorporate traditional West African and American contemporary dance in two world premieres. In Shifters, Kouakou challenges time through perpetual moving bodies, while A Drop from Nowhere is a duet that unravels individual memories through a mutual initiation of body parts, maintaining an understanding of each other while in pursuit of personal identity.
