THE INITIATE | L'INITIÉ
Premiere in 2021.
The Initiate | l’Initié reflects on the importance and impact of rites of passage during key transitions in our lives. In Africa and all cultural traditions, rites of passages primarily deal with entering a new stage of life – a journey from one world to another. Traditional rites of Passage transmit cultural values and knowledge to an individual or individuals. Choreographer, Lua Shayenne, is interested in exploring the contrast between the above mentioned and our modern culture’s codes of behavior, its ritual experiences and the objects associated with them.
