Amour. The most beautiful word to exist. The Senegalese dance maker Alioune Diagne looks for love again and again, and continues to question it, shake it, and examine it again.

"L'amour se trouve dans ton intérieur"
— Alioune Diagne

Love is a power that connects people, and goes beyond countries and cultures. In the personal and intimate dance solo Amour Amour Amour, Alioune Diagne makes the different facets of love recognisable. Love as a spiritual source that moves you and can make you more the furthest point. As a source of energy that can charge you. But also love that goes with separation. Of a child that leaves the parental home one day. Of partners that need to let each other go. Of moving to a totally new culture. A personal story of Alioune Diagne in which a Senegalese past is taken to a new future. Let yourself be immersed in love and travel with him.

Amour Amour Amour is Diagne’s third production on this topic. The first version, Amour, was an homage to dancer and choreographer Maurice Béjart. The second version, Amour Amour, was an ode to the stateless Mauritian dancer Pape Fall. Amour Amour Amour is the first production of the maker that will be performed in the Netherlands.
