DANCE FUSION COLLABORATION
KRYSTAL LOWE & AÏDA DIOP
Ballet Cymru meets Ballet Africains with this special festival commission bringing together Krystal Lowe (Wales based ballet and contemporary dance artist) and Aïda Diop (Senagalese traditional sabar dance specialist). Both have previously been involved in separate The Successors of the Mandingue international dance collaboration projects previously. Including projects that brought together both traditional West African and contemporary dance artists from Senegal and Wales together to create fusion pieces via Zoom. We are really excited to see how this partnership develops by bringing Krystal and Aïda and their unique styles together in the same room!
