On Wednesday, November 8th members of Compagnie Tche Tche spoke with a group of over 75 people comprised of dance majors, faculty and students from elective courses. The company brought to Columbus by the Wexner Center is one of the only all female contemporary dance companies from Africa. Based in the Ivory Coast, the director spoke about how they have built an international reputation throughout Europe and the Middle East without receiving support from their local government. Many questions were raised about the hardships of establishing and maintaining an all female company within African Culture. Even though the company of four female dancers and three male musicians was limited by the language barrier to communicate with the dance department, it was clear that all were united by a philosophy that a passion for dance is what keeps us all going and committed to the field.
