Project description

Through its animation and awareness-raising activities in Africa, the association participates in citizen development. Since 2007, it has organised the annual international West African theatre festival “Casamance en scène”, which has become a platform for training and artistic and cultural promotion.

The cancellation of the 2020 edition due to Coronavirus, followed by the introduction of a curfew, turned the organisation and running of the festival upside down. Instead of being held over a week, in 2021, the highlights were spread over several months, and the performances went beyond the walls of the Alliance Française to take over the courtyards of the houses in the Yamatogne neighbourhood. Today, the project intends to perpetuate this new formula, which has proved to be more effective in terms of promotion and distribution among the population.
