“A small house will hold a hundred friends” is an old African proverb, and this dance house is ready to welcome all of you.
Kwabo means "welcome" in Fon, a dialect from Benin. Beyond its literal meaning, Kwabo encompasses the welcoming spirit of guests by members of the villages in both Togo and Benin. The local community would gather to celebrate the guests’ arrival by dancing, singing and playing music.
Reflect, explore, express and feel notions of belonging and racial equity; celebrate the power of coming together as one. Your cultural heritage is your strength, your richness, and a crucial piece in shaping the collective. You all have a role to play in writing Kwabo dance story of belonging. Step into this collective expression and choose your work of art to create a collaborative visual map of our stories: “Kwabo Mosaic” or perform "Kwabo Dance".
