cos.mo.pol.i.tan is a 60-minute programme of explosive contemporary and traditional West African dance, live drumming and music. The presentation features two compelling works choreographed by Toronto dance artist Lua Shayenne: “Landed Immigrant,” based on the experience of newcomers to Canada, and “Hybrid,” which explores identity through a fast-growing multiracial and multicultural prism.

“We write our stories with the medium of the body, unearth a beginning, middle and end through movement and infuse them with raw emotions and explosive live percussion.”

Lua Shayenne’s work questions immigration and identity and this double bill explores what it means to be Canadian.
