French dance company Difekako performs childrens tale "Makak Janbé Croco"
The French Afro-Caribbean dance company Difekako plays the childrens tale "Makak Janbé Croco". The tale of the monkey and king crocodile performed in dance, theatre, music, percussion and vocals. The play takes us to the heart of an African village where every situation is more funny and outrageous than the last. Choreographer is Chantal Loial.
The French dance company of Martinican-born Chantal Loial draws on the African and Caribbean cultural tradition. The origin of the name Difekako is an expression in the Caribbean, which literally means "something warm". And that's exactly what Loial tries to achieve.
In the video Igo Drané and Rita Ravier talk about the play.
