Senegalese dancer and choreographer Germaine Acogny continues to inspire European choreographers. The founder of the Ecole des Sables dance school outside Dakar talks to RFI about dancing into old age following her most recent piece A un endroit du début at Paris's Théâtre des Abesses. Inspired by the tragedy of Medea, it draws heavily on Acogny's own rich, sometimes troubled, life and that of many Senegalese women.
