The three latest creations by Salia Sanou have appeared in the departments of Aude, Herault and Lozère.
Large shapes (“Beyond borders”, “Clamor of the arena” or coming from “Desire for horizons”), projects (“Scope of the body”, “Sweet France”) performative creations combining public (“Princess street memories”) or duo, as “Doubaley the mirror”.

With his choreographic ballads, proposed in 2016 and 2017, Salia Sanou questions forms of representation. To meet the public in order to reach out to a wider audience, which does not usually visit performance venues. To explore locations far away from the city. Meet a wider audience to discover the streets with the power of dance, meeting. Meaning of party and trance. Where art comes to the other and associates it in a festive shape.
