SIDIKI: Directed by Isaac Brown, Ana Paula Habib & Kathy Craven, Choreographed by Sidiki

Running on the dusty roads of Guinea at the age of fourteen, Sidiki's legs stop working. He falls down - mysteriously paralyzed. Polio or bad spirits, nobody cures him. He falls again, but this time into a deep depression. In Guinea, as in most other cultures, there are prejudices and preconceived notions of those who are different; they blind us to the abilities that lie within.

Unwilling to accept this fate, Sidiki literally takes matters into his own hands, and in the village where he was discarded he teaches himself how to dance without legs. Participating in the rite-of-passage ceremony of his village (to dance the traditional steps for continuous hours) Sidiki becomes a man, changing the way his people view those labeled as disabled. A grown man, Sidiki Conde is now revered in his native country as a master of music and dance, and his life's work is to empower people all over the world to accept their own abilities and feel free to dance as they are.
