France . 2023

In the presence of Valentin Bertrand, director.

March 2020, here I am confined in a heavenly oasis of the Mauritanian desert in the Sahara.

There I will meet Abdu. With his theatre company, he likes visiting nomadic camps standing in the vast desert.

Through games and laughs, theater actors deliver to the nomadic people basic messages about education, food and hygiene.

Shows, dances, songs… thousand coulours’ boubous fly to the percussion sounds. I feel carried by the desert melody, where never ending sand dunes curiously evoke the infinite dimensions of our soul.
