☘️About Kerman/ Sébastien Ly
Kerman brings to life the projects of the choreographer Sébastien Ly: on-stage performances; site-specific experiences; and short films. Each project has at its heart a dialogue between dance and various arts (literature, visual arts, photography, video, music). Founded and led by Sébastien Ly, KOAF is the extension of these intersections on a map of the city, with its inhabitants and the artists who work there. Kerman is the name of a city in Iran precisely halfway between Hue, Vietnam and Saint-Aygulf, France.
