This collaboration with Nigerian musician Sola Akingbola focuses on rhythm, the idea of two musicians and two dancers as a percussive and melodic ensemble. Both musicians and dancers work with short musical phrases, building, contrasting, and combining different rhythms, as each of the four artists contributes to the composition of the whole.
This work was commissioned by Transtango for the Dreaming Cities project.
