  • Theater / Dance

A dialogue of dance between Côte d’Ivoire and Japan

This is the latest installment in the “Logobi” series by multicultural unit Gintersdorfer/Klaßen, which comes to Tokyo after acclaimed performances in Europe. Logobi is a type of dance that emerged on the streets of Côte d’Ivoire in the 1980’s, originally as a contest between men. It has now spread throughout Africa and Europe, and is practiced by a wide range of people, including children and women. “Logobi 06” is created out of a collaboration improvised in real time by two male dancers with very different backgrounds: Côte d’Ivoire dancer and choreographer Franck Edmond Yao and Ismaera Takeo Ishii, a multi-disciplinary Japanese dancer with training in Butoh, hip hop, and more.
