"SHAKE THAT SIN" explores the 7 capital vices: the lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride with 7 female dancers who will each introduce one of the sins with a touch of humor. Her inspirations? Well, she found them in the recent headlines. How not to draw a parallel between Tiger Woods and Lust, the Arab Spring and Wrath, the debacle over the election in Ivory Coast and
Pride? She is dealing with deep society issues giving us a female perspective, using female's assets and dancers representing Women with different bodies, ethnicities and social backgrounds. This performance will excite you so much that you'll want to take Maïmouna's Booty Therapy workshops to express yourself and deliver one message: Shake your booty to assert yourself!

Maïmouna Coulibaly is a dancer, choreographer, writer and director, based in
Paris France specializing in contemporary African and Caribbean dance. She is the founder of "Les Ambianceuses", a dance company whose repertoire covers popular dance styles such as Ragga Dancehall, the Congolese movement style N'dombolo and Coupé Décalé, a dance that originated in the Ivory Coast's night clubs, just to name a few.

In the Fall of 2009, the Bay Area welcomed for the first time Maïmouna Coulibaly and her play "Hééé Mariamou". She is coming back in October 2011 with "SHAKE THAT SIN" a new dance- only performance, choreographed by herself and her dance company: "Les Ambianceuses".

This time, not only does she incorporate Urban African dances, but she also reaches out to other styles like Belly dancing, Modern-Jazz, Burlesque, Samba, Traditional African dances, Haka (from the South Pacific Islander). Because she is always growing, looking, learning, discovering you will also see some
Voguing, Kizomba, Funana, etc. You name it, she has it and you know she'll deliver!
