Kettly Nöel and Koffi Kôkô

Kettly Nöel


Above: Kettly Nöel (of Mali) looking cool and a little guarded directly after dancing the part of le Baron’s consort in the ballet “Un tango avec le baron” at the Gothenburg Dance and Theatre Festival. She was recieving an award (which the woman who was giving it kept assuring everyone was money).
Below: Koffi Kôkô (of Benin), not quite so cool, who danced the part of le Baron (Samedi).

The ballet seems to have toured Germany before coming to Sweden. The only English language link about it I can find is this on the website of the Hellarau European Centre for the Arts in Dresden. Here is a link to an article about Kettly Nöel from Huffington Post, and one about Koffi Kôkô from

Koffi Kôkô
