In this piece about grieving, created in 2018, the Cameroonian choreographer explores a universal subject by recounting the long journey she endured after a loved one died.
Agathe Djokam Tamo invites the public to go on a walkabout illustrating the states encountered while grieving, in an attempt to help them share their pain. Journeying from shock to anger, then from resignation to rebirth, this experience – which is bodily above all – takes place in silence for a while before finding expression in words and music. The young artist, a graduate of the Ecole des Sables in Senegal, won the 2020 edition of Serge Aimé Coulibaly’s solo choreography competition, Simply the Best, in Burkina Faso.
