Awoulath Alougbin

Dancer & choreographer

Born in Porto-Novo in Benin (°1978), Awoulath was immersed in the arts at an early age.

A Yoruba, she developed her knowledge of traditional dances during her training at the National Ballet of Benin. She met Haitian choreographer Ketly Noël and discovered the world of contemporary dance; in 1998 she took part in Danser la vie and in Ilô the following year. In 2001, she took part in L’Atelier du Monde at the Montpellier Dance Festival. Establishing her talent as a dancer, she performed in various productions, travelling internationally with Koffi Kôkô’s Les Feuilles qui resistent au vent (The Leaves that Resist the Wind) and Heddy Malem’s Le Sacre du Printemps.

At the same time, Awoulath started to research choreography. With other Beninese dancers, she formed the Sacam Danse group, before founding Compagnie AA, her own company. In 2004, she established herself as a choreographer with Aga Oba, in cooperation with Clement Kakpo and Nigerian dancer Qudus Onikekun. The following year, she took to the stage with a solo performance Les petites Calebasses. In 2007, Awoulath Alougbin created her 45-minute solo performance Ange, a fusion of choreographed movement, spoken word and song.

Subsequently, she established a contemporary dance training programme: Un pas vers la danse contemporaine, financed by the European Union during 2011. The following year, she established herself musically as a singer, with the release of the album Temi, which won a prize in Radio France Internationale’s newcomer competition. At the same time she produced two choreographical creations with the Fondation Zinzou: La promesse est l’empreinte de notre danse and Bribe urbaine.

In 2014, Awoulath Alougbin moved to Brussels and in 2019, created l’Etre en soi, now called Aro Ilè meaning: ‘The Crown of the House’.

Beyond her choreographical research, which is based on the essence of Benin dance, Awoulath Alougbin is making a name for herself as much there as in Belgium, as guarantor of the emerging contemporary dance movement in a country where the discipline is gradually laying the foundations for contemporary writing.
