La fille du soleil

Collectif Lisanga et Joujou Turenne (Montréal)

17 oct. — 19 oct.

Patience Bonheur Fayulu Mupolonga + Tachandy Barnett + Dumisizhe Vuyo Bhembe

Preceded by
Les mots et les maux
Joujou Turenne

In a campfire atmosphere, the lights dim and we hear percussion rhythms. Story time has begun. Enter Mikombe, the demon, and Liloli, daughter of the sun. In this project from the innovative Patience Bonheur Fayulu Mupolonga, a multidisciplinary artist born in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the world of these tales generously comes to life through shadow puppets, video projections and contemporary African dance.

Mupolonga supported the creative process of three remarkable artists: dancer and choreographer Tachandy Barnett, puppeteer, actor and stage director Patricia Bergeron, as well as musician Dumisizhe Vuyo Bhembe from Swaziland. In this intercultural tableau, a meshing of two tales from African oral tradition unfold eloquently, dealing with the role of women and their rights in African villages.

Joujou Turenne, storyteller, author and actress, offers a woman’s perspective of contemporary America. A modern nomad born in Cap Haïti, this “Friend of the Wind” spreads a message filled with dreams and freedom.
