Aller et Retour

Performance with live music

The National Assembly in Ouagadougou stormed - dictator Campaoré deposed after 27 years! Democratic elections! African spring in Burkina Faso - departure in one's own country versus flight to European"paradise"? What keeps us? Where do we go to? What are our longings? Projections?

All Et Retour
is a transcontinental cooperation of political relevance: young Burkinabe artists, who hold the future of their country in their hands, who defend themselves against (post-) colonial power structures and provide identity concepts of new African thought, meet the Hajusom performers with their own migration experiences, who raise their positions on Europe's immigration policy in the fight for recognition in the supposedly paradisiacal Germany.
