Here a man stands at a crossroads, in the reality of his profession, his passion, between Africa and Europe, simply trying to stay afloat in a world completely changing, where people are eager to try new things to discover new stars… While my profession is on quicksand, I – as an artist – question myself about my artistic and socio-political commitment in a continuous struggle to keep standing, despite the surprises and various trials of life.

After the creation of Fadjiri in 2013, a solo of its own resulting from an introspective research trip, Fitry is a new step towards Serge Aimé Coulibaly’s reflection on the lonely man, his responsibilities towards humanity and his reasons for being on stage. This time the research and creation is done through a different body than Serge Aimé’s, that of Jean Robert Koudogbo Kiki.
