Compagnie Julie Dossavi

Compagnie Julie Dossavi: P.I. (Pays) or Présentations intimes

"Julie Dossavi is a priestess performing solitary rites, a mischievous child at play, an immigrant wandering through subway corridors, a warrior, a night-clubber…" Libération

Los Angeles premiere
The Sharon Disney Lund Dance Series

Infusing contemporary African dance forms with jolts of high fashion and street culture, the mesmerizing Julie Dossavi from France presents a collection of solos and duets accompanied by live African percussion, voice and electronics. The dancer and choreographer draws on sources from electronic dance music and club culture to gymnastics and tribal ritual to shape distinctive works that are modern, ethnic, expressive and abstract—and always alive with a distillation of human experience. Dossavi has collaborated with influential choreographers Philippe Decouflé and Joseph Nadj while also crossing over into the worlds of video and fashion through projects with Jean-Paul Gaultier, Nina Ricci and Angelique Kidjo.

This project is made possible by Cultures France, a division of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States.
