Three screen dances made for the CCBdance Project and completed between 2020 and 2022 will be shown as well. Works to be screened include: “Je Te Souhaites Du Bien et Apres…”, “blue, green,” and “Cycles of Growth.”
This work and showing has been partially sponsored by a Base Experimental Residency and a Faculty Development Grant at Cornish College of the Arts.
The CCBdance Project was formed in 2006 by Christian Bambara and Celia Weiss Bambara to promote intercultural understanding and peace through experimental African-based contemporary dance. The CCBdance Project aims to address themes of race, travel, translation, love, violence and interculturalism. Since its formation, the CCBdance Project has engaged in work that critically addresses the traditional base of West African and Caribbean dance in combination with African, American and European contemporary movement. The company includes the choreography and collaboration of Lacina Coulibaly, Christian Bambara and Celia Weiss Bambara and is directed by Celia Weiss Bambara.
