CHAKA SOLOS from the Ballet Created for the commemoration of the Bicentenary of the French Revolution at the Grand Palais des Champs Elysées on 22 May 1989 in Paris.

Descripción :

Choreography Maurice Béjart
Popular music from Brazil and the Ivory Coast
Texts by Léopold Sédar Senghor

Opening this programme, which pays tribute to black artists who have marked the history of dance, Chaka is a masterpiece by Maurice Béjart, written in the midst of the celebration of the Bicentenary of the French Revolution (which unfortunately failed to make slavery disappear). Once again, the choreographer offers us, in these few minutes that pass in a flash, a great moment of dance. Choosing King Chaka, founder of the Zulu kingdom, as his character, Béjart reconnects with his African origins. Ten years earlier, he had already opened Mudra-Afrique in Dakar, thus honouring the memory of his Senegalese great-grandmother. To a text by Léopold Sédar Senghor, Béjart reminds the dance of its 'negritude', to use the words of another great author, Aimé Césaire. At the same time, he offers it one of its most beautiful jewels.
