Nadine Baboy

Désintégration culturelle

Désintégration culturelle expresses a new and contemporary view on métissage. Poetry, music and dance intersect; styles and artistic disciplines are mixed together. The performance premiered at KVS in 2019 and due to overwhelming demand will return in the spring of 2022.

Nadine Baboy is a Belgian-Congolese artist with a passion for performance. As a dancer, choreographer, actor and poet, she takes inspiration from artistic and cultural cross-over. She has previously worked on various dance theatre projects that blend movement and word, including KVS and la Monnaie’s musical L’Homme de La Mancha. Her passion for dance translates into a fusion between hip hop, dancehall and contemporary afro-styles. Her powerful texts broach striking themes and link her African roots to her European base. She starts from a writing process that can be both poetic and choreographic.
