Kossi Sebastien Aholou-Wokawui – Contemporary Afro-African Dance

Exploring urban and ethnic territories

“Le Serpent de Vie”: Contemporary Afro-African Dance

Traditional dances of West Africa, Caribbean dance from Haiti and Cuba, and contemporary Western dance, with a creative approach. Those are the ingredients of the Afro-African technique by Kossi Sebastien Aholou-Wokawui, dancer and teacher from Togo. During his workshop you will dance with a free body, an open mind and total fluidity. This technique is an ongoing dialogue with the cosmos and nature, focused mainly on rooting, breathing and the mobility of the spine. Special importance is given to improvisation and musical accompaniment, while retaining the strongest elements of African dance, such as energy, rhythm, earthy/grounded movements and elevation.

Kossi Sebastien Aholou-Wokawui grew up in Togo. He learned traditional and contemporary African dance as well as modern and jazz with different ensembles. He completed further training with Stephanie Thiersch and at the École des Sables (Senegal), and worked as a workshop leader at the Théâtre National d’Haïti. He has joined the German Steptext Dance Project in 2012 and has since danced in numerous international productions. In 2018 he choreographed a dance duet with Tomas Bünger, which was performed in Dhaka (Bangladesh), Lomé (Togo) and Bremen (Germany). In 2019 he joined the company Of Curious Nature (Germany). As a teacher, he has created a variety of workshops in Contemporary Afro transcultural youth dance theatre projects.
