About Elisabeth Bakambamba Tambwe
Elisabeth Bakambambamba Tambwe (Congo, 1971) combines dance and visual arts. In her work she seeks combinations between modern contemporary dance and performance, often in combination with visual art. In this she collaborated with choreographer Robin Orlin and with Serge-Aymé Coulibaly, George Momboye, Graciane Finzi, Cyril Viallon, Faustin Lyniékula. In 2005 she founded her company Dixit in Lille, focusing on the crossovers between modern dance, performance, visual arts and experimental music.
Elisabeth Tambwe previously performed her solo dance Mon Cœur Balance in the Netherlands at Julidans Next in 2005. In 2006 she and her company Dixit created the choreography Concerto pour Corps Bruyants, which was performed at the Festival Le Manifeste, at the Royal Flemish Theater in Brussels and Le Vivat in Armentières.
In 2009 she choreographed React in Silence, Please at WUK (Kulturhaus for performance, theater and dance) and Dschungel Theater both in Vienna. She performed in A World full of Butterflies, it takes Balls to be a Caterpillar.... Some Thoughts on Falling choreographed by Robyn Orlin (part of Afrovibes Festival 2017). An important theme in her choreographic work is the manipulation of the body in European and Congolese dance. She focuses on the sensitive and vulnerable dimensions of the body and the 'concept of 'normality', which she criticizes as tyrannical and demeaning. Who decides what is 'normal' and what is not?
