A solo exploration of the experience of displacement, A disguised welcome… draws inspiration from Kenyan-born, France-based choreographer Wanjiru Kamuyu‘s experiences in Africa, North America, and Europe, offering a bitingly satirical look at the notions of center and periphery.

Created and performed by Wanjiru Kamuyu in collaboration with Dirk Korell (producer, dramaturge), Laëtitia Ajanohun (writer), Jean-Philippe Barrios (composer, sound engineer), Cyril Mulon (lightning design & manager, technical direction), Birgit Neppl (costume designer); with the voices of Sherwood Chen, David Gaulein-Stef, Naïs Haidar, Karine Hanselmann, Wanjiru Kamuyu, Dirk Korell, Crystal Petit, Monika Schwarzl, Sean Seago and the stories of Tout-Monde.
