Exploring shadow theater in Bali

In April 2023, I had the privilege of participating in a masterclass on shadow theater and masks in Bali. This experience had a profound impact on me by calling into question my perception of shadow theater, an art that I have practiced for many years. The fusion between tradition and innovation by Balinese artists, as well as the elevation to a deep spiritual dimension, opened new horizons for me and enriched my understanding of this ancestral art.

Theatrical collaboration in DRC

As part of the Francophonie in March 2018 and at the invitation of the Institut Français RDC, I conducted a laboratory with the Théâtre des Intrigants in Kinshasa on theatrical writing for young audiences. I was particularly struck by the wealth gap and the difficulty of access to cultural offerings.

Puppetry’s in Madagascar

At the invitation of the Cie des Zonzons in 2016, I went to Diego Suarez to stage short puppet scenes from the texts of Lolita Monga as part of an artistic laboratory entitled The Voices of the Puppet.

We worked on themes related to prostitution.

Celebration of traditional arts in Cameroon

In 2007, I joined Cameroonian artists and students to organize the Paroles d’Aïeux festival on traditional arts at the Cameroon center.

I was welcomed by M’Vet players and I went to a village in Central Cameroon to meet the Chimpanzee Dance.
