A few words about your artistic journey

Initially formed with the Canadian NGO Youth of the world, I then perfected my training in circus art at Faso circus and Rendez-vous chez nous ; then with the Awaln’arts festival in Morocco. Finally, I participated in the creation of a show with the Jules-Verne circus from Amiens. Since then I have been a circus art trainer in several countries. Today I work with Burkina Circus.

How long have you been an artist ?

I have been an artist since 2002.

Why did you apply for this grant ? How will the grant support you ?

With Burkina Circus, we applied to create a quality show by working in depth on the writing, the script and the staging. The grant will support us in writing and for the residency.

What are your concrete artistic objectives after this residency ?

My objective is to offer a quality show nationally and internationally by participating in festivals, competitions and organizing tours with this creation.
