KIRA, The Path | La Voie

KIRA celebrates humanity as one village, and its sacred bond to Mother Nature in this evocative work of dance, live percussion and chants by renowned Guinean artist Fara Tolno.

WORLD PREMIERE

KIRA, The Path | La Voie celebrates humanity as one village and its sacred bond to nature. It features a dynamic cast of dancers and percussionists whose evocative chants and powerful drum beats invoke Mother Earth's wisdom and echo her auspicious warning: the invisible cord that links us to her is wasting away. The interpreters are guided by the voices of our ancestors - the guardians of our moral code and spiritual guides.

Choreographer and composer Fara Tolno is one of the most influential African artists of this generation, actively increasing the professional recognition of African Dance in North America. He brings an innovative perspective to African dance and music, steeped in his knowledge of Guinean culture.

Estimated Run Time:
