Vita Siyo Muchezo Ya Watoto - Koninklijke Vlaamse Schouwburg
Frédérique Lecomte takes Belgian actors and theatre students to Eastern Congo. Together with local actors, she creates a performance with and about child soldiers. At the same time, the play also takes aim at the peace industry. After all, international development aid is a billion-dollar business, but who ultimately helps whom? The cast of Congolese, Burundian and Belgian artists is complemented by asylum seekers and refugees. Starting from the question ‘Why should child soldiers concern us?’ The performance sheds light on how the situations ‘here’ and ‘there’ are connected.
