THAT WHISPER IN THE DARKNESS OF THE NIGHT
When physical geography does not provide safe refuge, when no land offers a welcome that can put an end to wandering, when the idea of return becomes unimaginable, we turn to one of the few possible places left: a place that can still be a refuge, a haven, a shelter, a home for memory or a new utopia. That place lies in the abstract. It is the place of song and music.
Collectif Kahraba proposes a poetic journey, both visual and musical, to give the question of displacement a tangible human anchor, far from facts and pundits. Masks, music, chants, improvisation, drawing, and bodies in motion compose this musical poem imagined for the whole family.
