FATOUMATA BAGAYOKO, Mali – German Premiere

In her solo piece Fatoumata Bagayoko from Mali takes on female circumcision, to which she, along with numerous women not only in her home country, fell victim. In the darkness of the stage she raises her voice, while recapitulating the specific scenes of this cruel practice, and urges the audience to confront this theme, still covered in taboo.

“I wanted to challenge this pain. To make my contemporaries, my family, my country aware of the total lack of understanding, and strong disapproval, I feel towards this practice that has no place in our present day society. “
