Baker & Tarpaga Dance Project – “Declassified Memory Fragment”
September 25–26 | 8 PM
A forceful, individual brand of movement theater.
—Los Angeles Times
Featuring a top-notch ensemble of dancers and musicians from Burkina Faso, Olivier Tarpaga’s newest work of dance theater pulses with the beauty and complexities of contemporary African society. Caustic and clever, Declassified Memory Fragment uses dance, text and live music in an open letter on African society—and addresses the unspoken realities that shape the continent’s dynamic cultures, lifestyles and politics. His all-male cast takes to the stage with explosive and unpredictable force, exposing the emerging two-tier societies that simultaneously create and unravel friendships, even as brotherhood prevails.
Part of KST’s World Stage Series, made possible with support from The Benter Foundation and contributors to the World Stage Fund.
