Alternate Title Taagala, The Traveler
Country of Origin Burkina Faso
Description Dance from Burkina Faso has never found a more compelling voice than through Salia Nï Seydou, one of Africa's leading modern dance companies. The company's newest work, Taagalà (The Traveler), describes a journey that is as much physical as spiritual. With original live music and a set created by sculptor Goudou Bambara, Taagalà is a fascinating landscape built out of physical images, sound, light, and the feeling of constant motion.
