SOPPALIKU ... from Monolog to DIALOG

I am convinced of one fact: In excess, there is an increased awareness of the truth of things.
WHY dialog?
DIALOG with who?
HOW would we dialog?

  • "Soppaliku" (or metamorphosis) is a work that I conducted in 1996 (technical stylographie on fabric), and is a staging of two terms of an identity conflict in Senegal. A country shaken, over time and space by violent Arab and European cultural "attacks".
  •  There are cultural consequences as a result of these attacks. We note that in the Senegalese elite there is a social divide: One part being of the Arabized elite, while the other is of the westernized elite.
  •  "Soppaliku" exudes a certain melancholy that is personified by two characters who are suffering so intensely from the existential misunderstanding in which their historical legacy and current external environment exposes them.
  •  Should we reconcile these two extremes of cultural alienation?
  •  We must solve these cultural equations before tipping the African continent towards it's historical destiny: Unity ... Pan-Afrika.
  • Siggi_Taxaw_SEMEtt is for the cultural emancipation of Africa
