Urban Bush Women with Germaine Acogny and Kaolack (Pape Ibrahima Ndiaya) at Bryn Mawr College
"Urban Bush Women are committed, triple-threat performers who dance, sing, and act with a sometimes searing sense of truthfulness." -The New York Times
Resistance, memory, and love drive "Les ecailles de la memoire (The scales of memory)", a penetrating movement treatise exploring the convergence of African and U.S. history. Bryn Mawr is honored to present the women's section from this collaboration between Germaine Acogny, a legend in her native Senegal, and Jawole Willa Jo Zollar's all-female, Brooklyn-based Urban Bush Women. In addition, Acogny will dance her new solo "Songook Yakaar" and Pape Ibrahima Ndiaya (Kaolack), her star male dancer, will present "J'Accuse," which took first prize at the 2008 Danse Afrique Danse Concours. A solo by former Ailey dancer Caterine Denecy and Zollar's celebrated "Walking with Pearl...Africa Diaries" complete the program. A "talk back" with leading Africanist dance scholar Dr. Brenda Dixon-Gottschild follows the performance.
