On the Field
An art that speaks to everyone
The authentic folk art of street theatre allows to federates people and convey messages...
Created in 2002, the Vigie company regularly plays in the Marakanam region. It gives a new life to this folk art. Both professionals and amateurs go from village to village and in schools.
Vigie challenges and raises awareness. Performances display social realities and daily problems: the condition of farmers and women, child education, aids, alcoholism, environmental issues.
Vigie also allows to rehabilitate a popular culture that was ignored and pointed at for centuries. The playful aspect allows to touch a wide audience, and notably, illiterate populations with verbal traditions.
