Before the performance of ‘Somewhere at the Beginning’ by Germaine Acogny the documentary ‘Au Coeur des Sables’ (‘The Soul of the Sands’) by Élodie Lefebvre will be shown. Germaine Acogny is also called the mother of African contemporary dance. At her dance school in Senegal, Ecole des sables, she teaches dance to young dancers from the whole of Africa without losing sight of their own traditions of dance.
