In May they will take their brand of confrontational theatre to La Rochelle in France where they will participate in the FÃƒÂªte du Jours festival.
Here Cohen will perform his works called Chandelier and Limping Into The African Renaissance. Elu, whose work derives from more orthodox dance roots will perform The Goatfoot God Pan parts one and two, and Broken Bird.
Their untraditional approach has also attracted interest in Berlin where Singaporean curator and artist Ong Keng Sen of In Transit, a Berlin-based cultural festival, is working on a project that focuses on works from diverse parts of the southern hemisphere.
In Transit describes itself, not as a presentation of art, but more a process. It sees itself as an on-going laboratory that involves the audience and the city streets.
In Berlin, Cohen will also collaborate with 81-year-old Nomsa Dhlamini. There, he and Elu will perform in
Tradition, which Cohen describes as ”the famous shit eating work”.
From Berlin Cohen and Elu will return to France for a six-month residency with the company Ballet Atlantique, under the directorship of world-renowned choreographer Regine Chopinot.
