Correspondances
Kettly Noël (Haiti/Mali) and Nelisiwe Xaba (South Africa)

They met through a friend in Johannesburg. A year later, they decided to create a piece together. They met again briefly in Port Elisabeth (South Africa) and got to know each other better. Another meeting in Bamako, then in Bern. After that started a series of correspondences...

Correspondances is a lively and sophisticated duet that is part theater, part dance and part storytelling. Noël and Xaba come together for a raucous conversation on diverse subjects - ranging from the superficial to the profound - that address the intimate fabric of friendship while exploring themes of race, culture and gender.

Part of VOICES OF STRENGTH: CONTEMPORARY DANCE & THEATER BY WOMEN FROM AFRICA, curated by MAPP and presented in partnership with The Africa Contemporary Arts Consortium.
