DANCE TERRITORY is an international zone inhabited by young dancers, choreographers, artists and musicians. Beyond frontiers,  across from boarders, ethnicity, religion and gender roles, DANCE TERRITORY is a place of new initiatives and free collaborations, a haven for exchange of artistic perspectives and personal experiences. Through laboratories and workshops, we engage in dialogue and creation, bringing together artists from different parts of the globe.

DANCE TERRITORY #1 host a series of labs and site specific performances inviting contemporary performing artists from West Africa (Burkina Faso) to meet with Danish, European, Indian and American dancers and musicians, the ‘artists in residency’ projects takes place in Copenhagen and Aarhus, Denmark. Our aim is to gain a renewed perspective on the global community that we are all part of.

The artistic anchors of our exchange program DANCE TERRITORY #1 are Lacina Coulibaly, choreographer (Dance Territory South) and Pipaluk, choreographer (Dance Territory North), in collaboration with Ouagadougou dancers Esther Tarbangdo, Bachir Tassembedo, Kiki Jean Robert Koudogbo, Mariam Traore, and musicians Issouf Diarra, Boureima Diarra, Nadège Ouedraogo and Cyril Mossé.
