Among my creations, we can cite, among others, Story for cohesion and Peace, Parole de la muette, Parachutage, Les Archives Parlent, Macbeth, ... I direct today the Burkina Theater Research Institute (IRTB).

How long have you been an artist ?

I took my first steps in art in 1999-2000.

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

This grant allows me to realize a precious artistic project for me in this period when everything is suspended. It is an opportunity to continue, to resist, to dream and to contribute to building a better world.

What are your concrete artistic objectives after this residency ?

Produce an audio show capsule of proverbs of 25 to 30 minutes ; promote a return to the sources, to traditions to feed the modern world and enhance the intangible heritage of Burkina Faso.
