La Ronde Flamboyante

(Il)legitimate play by a son of colonialism
Companie MAPS / Théâtre de Liège en ligne

Based on the interviews and research that Emmanuel De Candido carried out in Sicily, the Democratic Republic of Congo and the island of Réunion, this fable with five characters tells the story of a debt. Within the aggressive context of capitalist globalisation, the company MAPS deciphers how macro-economic mechanisms are poisoning how we live together and disrupting lives. The writing borrows Schnitzler’s ‘round-dance’ principle and draws inspiration from the English psychological thriller and the Congolese art of story-telling.
