Compagnie Siyaj : Like a Couple of Brothers

A cell. Two men, life-long friends, almost brothers. Two men in a state of suspension... The staging, with its spare and symbolic décor, sticks to the task of encircling the script, the intentions and the deliberately unuttered words of author Maryse Condé.

Duo Lê Quang-Peirani
