Cie Kawin

Anani Sanouvi and Christiane da Cunha create Kawin, an interdisciplinary company that blurs the lines between performance, dance, sound art and visual arts. The company is based on a de-colonial vision and practice, on knowledge and the crossing of the animist sensibilities Guarany of Christiane and Éwé of Anani as well as their respective cultures. Since 2006, they have presented their creations in numerous theaters, festivals, museums and cultural centers, in Brazil and abroad.
