NOTES POUR UN RADEAU AFRICAIN
2/3 The Raft Trilogy
Following my historical research on the painting The Shipwreck of Medusa (1818) and thanks to the collaboration between the University of the Arts of Zurich (ZHdK) and the Cultural Space Gambidi, in Ouagadougou, I went to Burkina Faso to work with African and Swiss actors. This documentary shows the preparations for a performance based on the character of Therese, the only woman aboard the Raft.
