Mami Wata is a water goddess: a being from the depths of the night, charged with power and sexuality. She is a mermaid generating a primordial, fluctuating dance made of leaps – metaphors for desire and for the search for pleasure.
Betty Tchomanga is a French/Cameroonian dancer and choreographer, trained in ballet, modern jazz and contemporary dance. Since 2016, she has been a member of the Lola Gatt Association, where she develops her own creations.
