      Cassa Cassa! Danced Encounters Between Africa and Its Diaspora (Elodie Lefebvre; Senegal, 2013)

      In 2007, an extraordinary gathering of choreographers, dancers, and musicians took place in a remote Senegalese village. Germaine Acogny—founder of the École des Sables, International Center for Traditional and Contemporary African Dances—invited artists from throughout Africa and its diaspora to participate in workshops and cultural exchanges. Cassa, Cassa! captures participants as they share their choreography, elucidating links between traditional and contemporary dance and discovering connections between their various cultures.
