From Yaounde with fire

I was recently invited to a cultural week in Yaoundé, organized by the Goethe Institut Cameroun and curated by Princess Marylin Douala, Nontobeko Ntobela ans Rose Jepkorir to facilitate workshops with students from Lycée Bilingue de Mendong with students aged between 15 and 19 years old on the topic of colonization, especially German colonization. I chose to work from a futuristic angle to deal with The Burden Of Memory. All I did was listen to the youth, encourage them, share with them a few performance techniques and work a bit on their costumes. The poems they created in a space of three days is the result of their imagination. Kudos guys!! You’re amazing. Here’s a quick rough edit to give you an idea about the experience.

I’m very thankful to the people of Yaoundé, facilitators, technicians, organizers and participants.

1key, 1love
