For its Kennedy Center debut, the company performs Kombé's evening-length Dimi, which translates as "Pain." The production brings together the choreographer, three other dancers, live musicians, and an original score to probe the inner conflicts of contemporary African women. As they endeavor to empty their bodies of suffering by embracing and soothing each other, crying and laughing, breaking away and returning, the dancers create an intensely physical spectacle of movement that celebrates female solidarity.
"Astounding physical daring… stunning"
--The New York Times
"The dance becomes as aggressive as it is beautiful."
