Alma Txina (...) is a highly interesting example of the encounter between so distant creative universes as are those from Western Europe and from sub-Saharan Africa. Without establishing any hierarchy in the acculturation process, it is as if these five choreographies witness, each one in its one way, the difficulties to stir the nature of the other. On one side, the nature of a certain type of formal construction, and, on the other, the nature of movement. At this point of refinement, the rebelliousness of both sides was almost completely revealed.
