Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) – On Saturday, January 25, 2019 the AwArtMali theatre caravan is arrived in Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso), at the Gambidi space, a centre that gathers actors and musicians from different countries of West Africa, and staged Tunka, the spectacle that constitutes the heart of a project that aims to raise awareness of the risks of migration.
In the presence of Mme Pilar Palmero Vaquero, Head of Cooperation Section of the European Union Delegation in Burkina Faso, Domenico Bruzzone, Director of AICS Ouagadougou, Blandine Sankara, sister of Thomas Sankara (President of Burkina Faso from 4 August 1983 to 15 October 1987), and Denisa Savulescu, African representative of Tamat NGO, the actors and musicians led by the director Luca Fusi supported by the dramaturge Ildeverd Meda, on the base of the testimonies collected and filmed in Mali, Spain and Italy by Maurizio Schmidt (Farneto Teatro), reported a real success with a part of the audience standing because the seats were sold out. It is clear that even through theatre it is possible to address such an important issue for communities and countries in West Africa as that related to the risks of migration.
AwArtMali is a project co-financed by the European Asylum, Migration and
Integration Fund (AMIF) AMIF2017-AG-INFO_824407, coordinated by TAMAT NGO in partnership with ISMU, GIUSTI EVENTI, FARNETO TEATRO, INSTRATEGIES, CONGENIA, CARDET.
