Théâtre de la Guimbarde

Walangaan (“water that flows” in Wolof) tells in its own way the cycle of water. The water that feeds, that runs down the skin, splashes, cleans, sings, gushes… and the water that sometimes, more and more, runs out. A singer and a percussionist follow the course of water, reveal its sounds and play with their voices and their bodies. From the drop to the rain shower, from the splash to the waterfall, until the intimate moment of bedtime, when children go to sleep and the city lights are lit. A sung interlude celebrating the preciousness of this element that is renewed since the dawn of time.
