Beyond Black
CRÉATION 2014

La rencontre entre Ballaké Sissoko et Nicole Mitchell, au-delà du risque artistique qu’elle comporte, ne peut échapper au danger d’un détournement idéologique, faussant le jugement esthétique pour « les besoins de “la” cause d’une communauté noire homogène ». Parce qu’émotion musicale ne se confond pas avec couleur de peau,Beyond Black invente un imaginaire transatlantique libre de ces présupposés.
