Yerba Buena Center for the Arts says…

As part of our commitment to supporting the work of contemporary African choreographers, YBCA welcomes Voices of Strength: A Two-Night Celebration of Contemporary Dance and Theater by Women from Africa, a U.S. debut tour that celebrates the stylistic diversity of contemporary performance across the African continent. Created and performed by Nelisiwe Xaba (South Africa), Kettly Noël (Haiti/Mali), Nadia Beugré (Côte d’Ivoire), Bouchra Ouizguen (Morocco) and Maria-Helena Pinto (Mozambique), the works in Voices of Strength use humor, irony, poignancy, and power to confront personal obstacles, address political and social issues, and paint true and vivid pictures of the lives of contemporary African women.
