Dieudonné Niangouna text – Etienne Minoungou actor – Jean Baptiste Hamado Tiemtoré director, set design

Étienne Minoungou comes from the world of Burkina-Faso theatre and works unrelentingly to introduce culture there where it’s absent. He looks like Ali and shares his strength and charisma. Making the most of the comparison, the actor takes over, puts on his boxing gloves, tells us about his reality as an African “combatant” and gives a well-aimed uppercut to deep-rooted prejudices.
