History of the company


Art’ Dév/Compagnie Auguste-Bienvenue appears to be a laboratory where permanent work in being done in terms of research, training, artistic projects and collaborations.


Created in 2000 under the name of Association Compagnie Tã, the company adopted the current name in 2007 in order to make more dynamic its actions. Art’ Dév/Compagnie Auguste-Bienvenue draws its inspiration from real life to bring its contribution to the development of choreographic creation on the African continent. The main goal is to bring change through creations, to meet and share, to give and receive through dance.


The training of young dancers is the main concern of the company; hence the launch of the project Engagement Féminin in 2008 by Auguste OUEDRAOGO and Bienvenue BAZIE. This project aims at contributing to the emergence of a new generation of female choreographic artists in Africa. In addition, the company works on how to bring awareness to creative dance among a larger audience in both big cities and remote places, through exchange after the shows.


In order to make more visible its actions, Art’ Dév/Compagnie Auguste-Bienvenue has been partnering with the Association Wa Tid Saou, based in Bordeaux (France), since 2009.


Working on a specific choreographic writing, the company has created several pieces which have been presented in Burkina Faso and abroad:


-          Kuum (Mort), 2001 ;

-          Bûudu (Le Songe du Peuple), 2002 ;

-          Tin Souk Ka (Au milieu d’ici), 2005 ;

-          Traces, 2007 ;

-          Tourments Noirs, 2009 ;
