burkina faso-born choreographer souleymane badolo presents yaado, his new work commissioned by danspace project, at the apap showcase--presented by the association of performing arts presenters--at dance new amsterdam this week. i've been excited about souleymane ever since his recent collaboration with my choreography idol nora chipaumire (pictured above right with souleymane). the performance is FREE, so if you're in new york, definitely check it out.

"In Yaado, Souleymane Badolo brings customs and rituals at the seams of cultures (urban versus rural) into the present and beyond, evolving them within a contemporary art context, dancing not to lose his rural and traditional heritage."
