KALAKUTA REPUBLIK is an intense and fast-paced piece about Fela Kuti, the founder of Afrobeat music, who in his role as the poster boy of the pan-African resistance movement in the 1970s united art and politics like no other. Kuti’s expansive songs, influenced by polyrhythmic Yoruba music and his experiences in London’s jazz and funk clubs, became weapons of political activism; his appearances were “underground spiritual games,” wild improvisations with elements of political satire. Kuti’s band and his son, Seun Kuti (p. 35), carry on this project to this day. Choreographer Serge Aimé Coulibaly, from Burkina Faso, takes on Kuti’s music and his ambivalent personality, with its excessive drug use, charisma and strong political will, and translates it into a powerful movement language that feeds off traditional West African vocabulary and contemporary globalized nightlife. Named for Kuti’s estate, which he declared as independent of the Nigerian state, KALAKUTA REPUBLIK is a hypnotic dance piece that draws a path from the African revolution to our contemporary times.
