On the 3th of november Simone Heijloo & Tebby Ramasike show a fusion of contemporary and african dance in three performances: ‘Simbe‘, ‘Sketches Of The Unaccountable Effects‘ & ‘100 kisses‘.
‘Simbe’ is based on a traditional story and ritual from Senegal, that shows the transformation of a man into a lion. In this duet two people transform into lions, to find their inner strength and to be able to survive and connect together in life. Together they are stronger. The two lions are playing, dancing and singing. Together they find pleasure, force and unity again.
This duet is from ‘RODÉ’, an African Contemporary dance and music performance.

SKETCHES OF UNACCOUNTABLE EFFECTS – a PMDS version –
‘Sketches of Unaccountable Effects’ – originally created as a trio en set to live music, deals with a situation where people from different cultures and/or lands arrive and meet at a certain place for a First time, trying to find a common ground in their own right. Building up relationships by cross-over interaction with one another. This dance work explores different movement genres, creating across-pollination of dance idioms, blending contemporary movements with other dance forms.
This is a reworked version, created exclusively for Paris Marais Dance School (PMDS)
The work forms part four of an ongoing interactive multidisciplinary cross-over collaborative project ‘THE WALKING THROUGH: A Journey … A Memory … A Recollection … The Meeting’ in which Tebby invites different artists to collaborate with.

‘Kisses only for you…
They will show how much I love you.
One day, hopefully I will get the chance to show my love for you.
In words, in actions and 100 kisses for you.’
Love and be loved seems to be one of the most beautiful things in the world.
Whenever you get the chance to show your love, take it and live it.
In words, in actions and in 100 kisses too … ?
