  • KHA’ is a word in the Huron-Wendat language that means “here”. Strength, resilience and vulnerability. This solo choreographed and performed by Aïcha Bastien-N’Diaye suggests a striking amalgam of movement and words. Her work carries a clear and current message: cultural diversity is a strength. This piece draws its inspiration from resemblance rather than differences. A powerful relationship between traditional African gestures, Indigenous, and urban dancing intertwined with a contemporary approach. Waves leading to stillness, and tremors transferring into the ground. A sole body moving through space, a pair of moccasins, a voice and percussion. Drenched in darkness, sections subtlety interlock. This short work is sure to keep both the public and the performer “here”.
