Considered one of the most respected and active artistic voices in Burkina Faso, choreographer and composer Olivier Tarpaga comes to The Joyce Theater, 175 8th Avenue, with his Dance Project “Once the Dust Settles, Flowers Bloom”, a sensitive collaborative work exploring themes of immigration, abandonment and social injustice. With focus on the refugees crisis, especially those of his homeland, Tarpaga examines the effects of religious extremism over the fragile class, women and children engaged in the fight against the political oppression they arduously endure. Performed by a group of distinguished, energized dancers to original live compositions by Tarpaga. October 3-8. Tickets start at $10. INFO:
