Dancer/choreographer Andréya Ouamba, born in Congo-Brazzaville, started his artistic career in 1993. He has worked with numerous international directors and choreographers. In 1995, his first choreography, L’Haleine, won 1st prize at the Mabina-Danse Festival. In 2000, he started Compagnie 1er Temps that has, over the years, traveled from Dakar to Abidjan, Burkina Fasso, Johannesburg, Paris, Düsseldorf, Berlin, Bielefeld, Seoul, Denmark, Mali, Mozambique and Cameroon. In 2007, the company presented a new creation PALABRE, at the Limoges Festival, Les Francophonies en Limousin and toured Australia, Africa and the Oceania region.

Reggie Wilson (Artistic Director and performer) founded his company, Reggie Wilson/Fist & Heel Performance Group, in 1989. Wilson draws from the movement languages of the blues, slave and spiritual cultures of Africans in the Americas and combines them with post-modern elements and his own personal movement style to create what he now calls “post-African/Neo-HooDoo Modern dances.” His work has been presented nationally and internationally.
