Montréal Sarah Elola

La Pileuse

La Pileuse dives deep into the origins of rhythm and dance. This art of entering in communion with the elements instead of resisting them, of neither enduring nor dominating them; this art of renewal that can transcend the laborious; La Pileuse takes stock of all this and represents a mine of movements, sounds and philosophical reflections in what is ultimately an intimate encounter with the African woman.

A protean performer originally from Burkina Faso, Sarah Elola coloured her first 15 years with a kaleidoscopic African life both rural and urban, traditional and contemporary.
