Tunka: The AwArtMali project’s theatre caravan arrives in 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.
THE AWARTMALI THEATRICAL CARAVAN IS IN MOTION
The theatrical adventure of the AwArtMali project is in the middle of the path, in a challenging and delicate phase. The 7 actors and 2 selected musicians, coming from Mali, Burkina Faso and Congo, led by the director Luca Fusi together with the playwright Ildeverd Meda, have dedicated three weeks to improvisation, building stories, ensemble movements, choral situations around the theme of emigration at the Gambidi space in Ouagadougou. The starting point were the testimonies collected and filmed in Mali, Spain and Italy by Maurizio Schmidt.
A DOCUMENTARY VIDEO AND A THEATRICAL TOURNEE TO AWARENESS ABOUT THE RISKS OF IRREGULAR MIGRATION IN MALI
With these two tools, the TAMA365 campaign enters its full development. The production of the video documentary and the theatrical show, two of the main tools for raising awareness of the AwArtMali project, is in full swing. Through the production of a documentary video, the TAMA 365 campaign will narrate the migration through voices and images: lived stories, tales of those who have already embarked on the journey, what are the steps, the difficulties, the sufferings, the dreams they have. But also a way to tell positively how it is possible to undertake real integration paths and find opportunities to grow, or acquire skills and competences that can be spent in a dignified and safe life project in own country.
