Désintégration Culturelle – written, created and choreographed by Nadine Baboy – questions identity, heritage and cultural membership in a cosmopolitan society. Prepare for a vivid, dynamic performance - no sitting back in your plush seat - as the audience becomes completely immersed in the universe Nadine and her performers create. The show takes you on a journey in which poetry, music and dance intermingle and through this mix of styles a modern vision of hybridisation emerges.
After the succesful premiere of Désintégration Culturelle at KVS, we are reprising the performance on popular demand. Due to its particular audience setup, capacity for this performance is limited – so grab your tickets early!
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.
