La JUJU_2016 production (touring)


CREATION OCTOBER 16TH 2015 | Choreographic National Center of Tours
REPRISE APRIL 2ND 2016 | French Institute of Cotonou, Benin

Woman, artist, black, modern, urban… Two origins, European and African, constitute the wire of a shifted fiction, an ideal opportunity to create about strength and weakness, difference and exclusion. Julie Dossavi explores these dualities by transforming herself into a super heroin – La JuJu - whose power is to travel in the spacetimes, to metamorphose when listening West African musics from the Sixties to the Eighties. She hypnotizes and shifts the audience in a musical parallel world...
