Kanassu, The Crazy One: An African Multimedia Choreopoem is an hour-long dance performance piece choreographed and directed by Senegal-born, US-based artistic director Papa Sy in his original style of West African contemporary dance.
Papa Sy inserts decades of expertise in contemporary and modern dance techniques to the diversity of West Africa in which he grew up. Through multiple manifestations of “crazy,” ranging from denunciations of greed, corruption, colonization, catastrophe, and urgency, the performance explores the question of craziness and belonging—what do we name as crazy, and what kind of everyday craziness do we accept without question?
