4 November 2022 | Exit from residence Infante | Eric Minh Cuong Castaing | Vélo Théâtre

This is the story of Racheal M., a 17-year-old Ugandan pop star who now has thousands of views on YouTube. On stage alone, she brings to the stage the gestures of her village and some naked words in Luganda about the rights of children and women. Racheal connects to her crew, the Waka Starz who have stayed in Uganda, via a large Skype screen. Gradually the frame expands: a Ugandan audience is watching the show from the other side. It is an attempt at a "double show" that develops on both sides, in a European theatre and on a stage in the periphery of Wakaliga, connected live.

Working stage Friday 4 November 2022 at 7pm - free
