In Itutu, identities collide and intermingle. The abstract world of the Armitage Gone! Dancers gradually finds itself in the world of African pop. The riveting African pop sounds of Burkina Electric are performed in several African languages as well as in French and English.
The ancient Burkinabé rhythms of Burkino Faso are fused with western club electronica as various social, ethnic, and virtuoso dance forms meet and merge. The most mysterious sections are performed to the polyrhythmic solos of Lukas Ligeti, unleashed on an electric marimba. Itutu is a voyage beyond the barriers that separate geographic and artistic worlds to celebrate the meeting of many minds.
