Compagnie La Calebasse.

The company was founded by dancer-choreographer Merlin Nyakim in 2001 and its dancers hail from Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Guinea, and France. Their choreography is an exciting mix of African and Afro-contemporary styles — exuberant, earthy, and joyful. Presented by the UW World Series.
