Le Vol du Boli
03/09/2020

Le Vol du Boli

Two passionate creators, Abderrahmane Sissako and Damon Albarn, are at the origin of this somewhat peculiar project: tell a story on the Thèâtre du Châtelet stage, spanning centuries and crossing borders, of a Boli, an animist fetish originating in Mali, West Africa. This musical epic transports us from Africa to Europe, from the 12thcentury to the present day, confronts without anger and with passion the tumultuous story of a meeting of two continents that ignored each other for too long. Le Vol du Boli thus depicts African history, from the Mandinka Empire and colonisation, to this date and counts with the participation of Fatoumata Diawara in the role of Queen Mother Sogolon. Show will run from October 2nd to October 18th in Paris.
