featuring Burkina Electric


Former “punk ballerina” Karole Armitage, who has choreographed for everyone from Baryshnikov to Michael Jackson, “is always pushing the limits of possibility, spectacularly deconstructing the body with a diabolic flair" (Le Nouvel Observateur, France). In ITUTU, her company shares the stage with the West African band Burkina Electric to create a haunting amalgam of dance and live music that combines ballet and African dance, electronica and ancient rhythms—a uniquely modern synthesis of new and old, pop and tradition.
