South African choreographer Robyn Orlin reconnects with French singer Camille in her new piece, a concert/performance of riveting emotional power.

A major choreographer of the African continent, Robyn Orlin has made the cultural complexity and fractures of her country, South Africa, her prime source of inspiration – earning her the nickname of “a permanent irritation” back home. Here she confronts her world with that of Camille, an indefinable virtuoso singer who readily dabbles in folk, R’n’B, body percussion (à la Bobby McFerrin) and even dance, which she does barefooted. After a first collaboration on Ilo veyou, following Camille’s album of the same name, the two women are teaming again on this creation, which takes the form of a rousing concert/performance! Capable of incredible vocal feats, Camille both sings and dances here. On stage, with her voice as her sole instrument, she explores the bonds between sounds and bodily expression.
