Compagnie TchéTché

Dimi (women's sorrow) is about the social injustice, repressive morality, and enduring patriarchal culture faced by women in Africa. The work features four dancers accompanied by live musicians playing the Fulani flute and keyboards.

Compagnie TchéTché is an all-female dance troupe from Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. Founded by Béatrice Kombé in 1997 to “show that woman is not the weaker gender,” TchéTché has emerged as a valiant symbol of the power and passion of women. The Company’s signature style is powerhouse dancing at the edge of physical danger juxtaposed with intense and arresting stillness. Through dance, the Company reconfigures notions of “subservient” African womanhood into an emphatic reclaiming of power and purpose.
