Awoulath Alougbin

Dancer / singer / choreographer

Awoulath Alougbin is a dancer, singer and choreographer, born in Benin.

As a Yoruban, she expands her knowledge of traditional dances during her training with the National Ballet of Benin. From an early age she has been immersed in the artistic world. Through her encounter with the Haitian choreographer Ketly Noël, she discovers the world of contemporary dance. She confirms her qualities as a dancer and participates in various creations, such as Les Feuilles qui résistent au vent by choreographer Koffi Kôkô and Le Sacre du Printemps by Heddy Malem.

Awoulath Alougbin, in collaboration with other Beninese dancers, forms the Sacam Danse group and also establishes her own company Compagnie AA. In 2004 she establishes herself as a choreographer with the performance Aga Oba, together with Clement Kakpo and the Nigerian dancer Qudus Onikekun.

Alougbin moves to Brussels in 2014. There she coordinates Radio Transit Lab, a project that brings together musicians with different roots. At the same time, she organises dance workshops and is active as an audience participation manager for the Brussels city theatre KVS.
