Choreographer Nadia Beugré’s inspiration for Legacy was the myth of the woman warriors called the Amazons and a specific moment in the history of her country, Ivory Coast. In 1949, women in the city of Grand-Bassam protested in a long march for the release of political prisoners, and to stand against French colonialists. Legacy is a homage not only to those women, but to all the women around the world who are fighting to be heard. Nadia Beugré and Hanna Hedman share the stage with a group of Amsterdam women. To stirring live music by the Ivorian musician Manou Gallo they move across the stage. With their bodies, voices and even their bras, they take over the space.
