A double bill that transcends the Past and Present…. The world we once knew is becoming one we have yet to understand…

Rooted in African and contemporary culture, ACE dance and music collaborate with two internationally acclaimed Black male choreographers Serge Aimé Coulibaly (Burkina Faso) and Vincent Mantsoe (South Africa).

Performed against dynamic multidimensional soundscapes by Andy Garbi and Yvan Talbot, two stunning contrasting works. A powerful explosive dance that uncovers the rich history of lives lived; memories, human struggle and people letting go… An all-embracing, multi layered production that celebrates sheer mortality, perseverance and hope overcoming adversity.


is a metaphorical night where people try to do their last dance before an uncertain tomorrow… Performed to a supercharged soundscape, this sensational new work by Serge Aimé Coulibaly questions – what frustrates you in the world today? Imagine… people meeting to escape their everyday life but, is it really possible to escape from the reality of this world?


Sacred, ritualistic and shamanic, the word ‘Mana’ is used in over twenty-four countries, it is universal, we can all feel it when people and things possess this power. Tracing the journey of past lives, this physical work unifies beliefs & cultures – it’s the ultimate life force, the stuff of which magic is made of…
