LE SYNDROME DE LA PINTADE – THE GUINEAFOWL SYNDROME

Musical Performance by Smockey and Serge-Aimé Coulibaly

Le syndrome de la pintade is the first major theatre musical production of Smockey, rapper and activist from Burkina Faso. As founding member and speaker if the citizens’ movement „Le balai citoyen“ (The Citizen Broom) he was one of the leading figures in the 2014 uprising against the long-term dictator Compaoré. Le Syndrome de la pintade deals with the experiences during this time: what happened to common strength and social cohesion? Which system of democratic government could be suitable for the Burkinabe society? The performance brings together rap, live music and storytelling with traditional elements. The allegory of the guineafowl allows audiences to consider the relationship between the political elite and the population in the shamocracy Burkina Faso, not leaving out any contradictions and absurdities.
