From Africa, The Americas, Caribbean & the rest of the world.
Studios Kabako has since been a refuge for young Congolese and African artists, offering long term accompaniment, from training to production and touring. I have toured in theatres, festivals and museums across Europe, Africa, Oceania and the Americas, including Théâtre de la Ville and Festival d’Automne in Paris, the MoMA and the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the Central Africa Museum in Tervuren, the Tate Modern in London, Festival d’Avignon, KunstenFestivaldesArts in Brussels, New Zealand Festival. I was Artista na Cidade (artist in the city ) of Lisbon in 2016, and co-associate artist for Holland Festival in 2019. I received the 2007 Principal Award from the Prince Claus Fund for Culture and Development, the 2014 CurryStone Design Prize and the 2019 Tällberg / Eliasson Global Leadership Prize.”

A French-speaking West African nation with a population of a little over 8 million, Togo is somewhat an unexpected destination—mainly because it is often regarded as an outlier market, thanks to its small-size economy and low tech appetite. Considering these, this landing in Lome might lend a hand in turning the tide for the nation.
