"Recreating the courtyard of a house in the exhibition space, then inviting a public to attend a representation there."
20h30 - 22h
Since June 2018 four artists have come together in the courtyard of a house in Zaria, in northern Nigeria, where generations of viziers lived for many years. In it the visual artists and video-makers Simon Rouby and Native Maqari, dancer Qudus Onikeku and musician Keziah Jones, found sanctuary, a work space, a stage and a laboratory. This courtyard became the epicentre of a corpus of works entitled Almajir, a ritual inspired by Sahel traditions. A ceremony improvised for those who cannot be mourned, the "Migrants" (Al-Muhajirs) dead in the Mediterranean.
