ABOUT JULIE IARISOA
Julie Iarisoa from Madagascar is one of the greatest contemporary dancers from the Continent. Her subtle blend of contemporary dance and traditional Malagasy movement has carved her a unique place in the world of dance. She has won several prices for her dance performances and choreography, and she has collaborated with a broad spectrum of international choreographers and traveled the world.
Julie Iarisoa together with Peter Nkogue from Gabon were the winners of Institut Français 2009/2010 Award “Visa pour la création” given to African artists who want to develop their artistic creations in France or in an African country besides their own.
They went on a tour, which took them to Nairobi where they each presented a contemporary dance solo developed during the 4-month residency program.
