Serge Aimè Coulibaly
Faso Danse Théâtre


With C la vie Serge Aimé Coulibaly takes his place in a rich tradition and creates a new contemporary initiatory story to explore life and our way of being in the world in 2023.

The 9 performers join on stage – a public square where anything can happen, and nothing is lost. As they embark on this initiatory journey, they invite us to witness the disappearance of the old world. No initiation is possible without experiencing – however temporary – the instability of the world.

In this story, there is no long series of various obstacles and no hero who must overcome them, but one single great challenge: how to be together? At the heart of the initiatory journey that is C la vie is the Encounter – with music, with the other, with reality, with time, with the planet, with the loved one, and so on. The only thing that matters is the event of the encounter and the quest to connect oneself to the world.

C la vie is not about filling a gap, but about radiating the fullness of the possibilities of being together as an antidote to this contemporary world that is spiralling into its own destruction.
