Mobility project: 
Antananarivo-based AMA grantee Oliva Randrianasolo traveled to Toubab Dialaw, Senegal to participate in “Du geste à la danse,” a 2-month series of workshops (April 6-June 13) on traditional and contemporary African dance at the École des Sables. Ms. Randrianasolo is a dancer with the Compagnie Tahala in Antananarivo. Passionate for dance since childhood, she has been training formally since 2010: first, with breakdance choreographer Gaby Sarofy, and subsequently, with renowned choreographer Julia Iarisoa and her company, Anjorombala. She has toured her country and has participated in a number of international festivals, including “Danse l’Afrique Danse” in Johannesburg. “Du geste à la danse. Le danseur interprète” was the first module in a new 3-part professional training program being offered at the École des Sables. Focused on the development of interpretive dancers, the workshops provided the 20-25 participants (all aged between 18 and 25) with the tools necessary to develop their interpretation, improvisation and choreography skills.
