Dancing into liberated self-expression with Maïmouna Coulibaly

The Sassy Show, Ep 1: Maïmouna Coulibaly is shaking up the stage one Sassy story at a time



As a performer, dancer and writer, Maïmouna has built a career with one common thread in mind - to liberate herself and those around her. In her one-woman, stand-up performance 'Hot Pussy Show' Maïmouna brings an energy of uncensored freedom; dancing her way through stories of rape, genital mutilation, childbirth, and sexual freedom. Alongside her theatre performances, Maïmouna has also created the concept of Booty Therapy.


Booty Therapy is not only a dance class, it's a sensual workout, mixed with rebellious action and flash mob-style performances. Maïmouna has spread her Booty Therapy message throughout Berlin, as well as across France, bringing Sassy people together and encouraging them to dance freely.


In this episode, we hear Maïmouna talk with our host, Bethany Burgoyne, about how she hopes to encourage people to know how powerful they are in the face of societal and global challenges. She also discusses the release of her debut book, 'Je me revele’ in which she shares her stories and research about sexuality, genital awareness, and the transformative experience of stepping into her late forties with sassy confidence.
