From urban dance to contemporary dance and with African dances, the choreographer Amala Dianor enters the Villa Savoye in France and fuses them all together. Collaborating with painter Grégoire Korganow, Amala Dianor adapts Man Rec’s choreography (“Me only” in Wolof) and transforms it to “Nioun Rec” (“Us only”), the début creation in a series of dance films called “Ciné-Danse.” Accompanied by dancer Nangaline Gomi, the choreographer offers a unique creation in the Villa Savoye, the icon of a new and modern architecture built by Le Corbusier.
