Tister stands with one leg in the rich tradition of Congolese dancing and percussions, and with the other leg in modern dance. The 450 provinces of Congo are an endless source of traditional dances and rhythms that will fascinate Congolese dancing enthusiasts. But the unique combination with modern dance is what is making Tister’s classes really original. Be prepared to dance a lot and to get immersed in Congolese rhythms with a hint of percussions. Worth exploring!
Traditional Congolese Dancing

He collaborated with Alain Platel and Fabrizio Cassol for the music and dance show “Coup Fatal”, a KVS and Ballet C de la B production, which already went on world tour.
