Movie: Becoming Astrid
Theatre – Akissi and Fofana, Cat and Rat Brothers
Mute theater show, made from three childhood stories, in comic strips, by Marguerite Abouet and Mathieu Sapin, namely Attaque de Chats, Match de foot and Langue bien pendule.
The show shares things of the daily lives of brothers Akissi and Fofana in the home with respect to their parents, and away from home with their friends, showing their complicity to "being up to no good", but also their differences, and the innocence with which they analyse and do some things.
From the point of view of staging and of corporeality, the spectacle was also inspired by the theatricality of the comic strip images of the same texts (above). It is a visual spectacle, without speech, characterised by physical theatrical play. It is of interest to all (the public in general). The main target audience is people (especially children and youth group) with hearing impairment.
