“30 Nuances de Noir·es” is an afro-feminist parade, founded by Sandra Sainte Rose Fanchine and inspired by the New Orleans fanfares, which comes straight to us from France. The group is 12 musicians and 14 dancers from the Compagnie Sandra Sainte Rose. Through songs and jazz- and funk-inspired emblematic dances, like Waacking, Locking and Soul Steps, the parade takes back the public space with a physical wandering to express the artistic and political power of her claims. “30 Nuances de Noir·es” is at the heart of a fight at the intersection of oppressions of gender, class and race that must be awoken.
