Olivier Tarpaga Dance Project

Hailing from Burkina Faso, choreographer and composer Olivier Tarpaga presents Once the dust settles, flowers bloom, an evening-length work that gives voice to the refugees of his homeland. Tarpaga addresses the fragility of individual autonomy in the wake of religious extremism, chronicling stories of women and children fighting against oppressive systems of violence. Performed to a live score composed by Tarpaga, Once the dust settles, flowers bloom offers the promise of hope through unity.
