Award-winning, Paris-based Leïla Ka ventures into raw dialogue, through diverse choreographic languages, in search of the multiple identities that constitute a person. Entering dance through hip-hop and later performing for Maguy Marin, Leïla Ka confronts the relationship to self, others and society, throwing herself into a never-ending struggle in her prize-winning solo Pode Ser. Paired with additional acclaimed works, University of Rochester’s Program of Dance & Movement proudly presents Leïla Ka’s USA debut. This engagement is part of the Albertine Dance Season and has received support from Villa Albertine Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S.
