'Diplomacy II' created and performed by Andréya Ouamba & Matthias Sperling, commissioned by Dance Umbrella Festival London, filmed at Royal Opera House, London on 10 October 2009.
'Diplomacy II' invites the audience to share in an encounter between two artists, asking: how do we get beyond the diplomatic to a closer understanding of one another and our relationships? Grounded in improvisation, their encounter is an embodied, evolving process of communication and negotiation. Andréya Ouamba and Matthias Sperling first met in 2007 through Woking Dance Festival’s Dance Dialogues Programme. Since then, they have collaborated on a series of short projects and artistic exchanges, both in the UK and in Dakar, Senegal.
