Do We Need Cola-Cola to Dance?

This Saturday, Nigerian choreographer and performer Qudus Onikeku will present his documentary Do We Need Cola-Cola to Dance? at Dance Theater Workshop.  The film documents the travels of a team of two performers, one sound artist, one video artist, and one photographer throughout Cameroon, Egypt, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, and South Africa as they tour an outdoor performance and interview arts culture workers in order to “structure a future for [themselves] as young professionals.”  The artists wonder, if dance is produced every time we move, do we really need a factory to fabricate more?  Watch the trailer below.

The free screening, July 25 at 5 PM, will be followed by a question and answer session with Onikeku.  Dance Theater Workshop is located at 219 West 19th Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues.

    I was not in NYC this weekend, so unfortunately I didn’t make it. We should try to find somebody who did attend so we can hear about it!
