In my ethnicity - Éwé - the formation of musical polyrhythm encompasses not only sound aspects but also motion, with each dancer acting as an additional layer of the musical polyrhythm. Polycentrism intertwines in this game where one becomes a flux of patterns as if they had a life of their own. The performance dives into this intimate relation with multiple vibrations, waves and frequencies as polyrhythm-graphy. Through it, I sculpt sound, become rhythm and chew a decolonial concept of choreography. Photo Christiane da Cunha
