Il se promène tout simplement, mais n est pas inaperçu...
S il est fin, ça manque de chair...
S'il est volumineux, il est trop gros
S'il est souriant, je peux l'avoir quand je veux
S'il ne sourit pas, il est arrogant.
S'il ne voit pas, il est vu par les autres...
S'il est n'importe où, il cherche le Danger...
Il est au corps de femme,
Il m appartient, ELLE est mon Bien.
Il n est pas facile de se débarrasser des habitudes imprégnées dans le corps, il n'est pas facile de se débarrasser de son Regard sur Soi, sur l'autre, ce regard qui cerne le Corps de la femme, l enferme dans les stéréotypes qui desservent l'un et l'autre sexe...
Le corps des femmes dans la ville cherche son Mouvement, son graphisme, son pas. Le Corps des femmes dans la ville laisse des Traces que nous suivons tout au long des performances,
"Deux femmes vont leur chemin, leur errance, leurs conflits, elles nous feront rêver, penser, imaginer, rire, peut être et nous souvenir...
C est pour elles un Acte fort de dévoilement, il s'agit de s'accepter soi et departager durant la représentation, l intensité du Désir commun, de vivre ensemble dans une société plus juste, plantée dans l histoire de son temps, comme un arbre dans la ville
L'une est Danseuse
L'autre est Peintre
Elles ne parleront pas, mais se serviront de leurs corps comme véhicules d émotion et de pensée quand la Musique de François Essindi (www.abakuya.net) offrira son habitacle sonore pour assouplir les gestes et porter Haut la couleur, pour célébrer ces Toiles suspendus dans le Vide de ces Immeubles bien habités

Bonjour,
Je n'ai pas choisi ma famille, mais s'il aurait été à moi donné de faire le choix, la prochaine fois, je choisirai toujours la même
Oui, j'ai toujours fais des remarques à ma famille de mettre des choses familiales, mais je trouve cette occasion exceptionnel pour ce personnage et j'aimerai lui faire honneur de publier une de nos discussions sur la période coloniale dans mon pays le Cameroun,
