Buja Sans Tabou 2018 - 3ème édition

What is the festival “Buja sans Tabou”?

The festival "BUJA SANS TABOU" was born from the desire to create a space for Burundian artists to express themselves freely, without any taboos and censorship on social issues (politics, religion, sex ...).

On the initiative of “TroupeLampyre” in 2014 and of his young artistic director Freddy Sabimbona, this festival works to promote the artistic potential of Burundi but also to allow an opening through to the participation of international companies and international artists.

A part of a team : 

What is new about the 3rd edition?

The specificity of this third edition is to leave the usual places intended for shows and to make the theater go towards the public.

One of the most popular habit, in Burundi, is to stop by the bar before going home. Therefore, popular places such as "Chez Gérard" in the neighborhoods of Rohero and Kinindo, will host 2 evenings of the Festival.

Also, for the first time in Burundi, 2 workshops on contemporary dance and scenography will be given. A great premiere.

 

What about upcountry?

It is important that Bujumbura will not be the only place where the plays will be performed during the festival. We wish that the theater will also be able to travel upcountry to Gitega. We will work with schools because they can accommodate the most spectators.


What is the programming of this year ?

Allocation of funds

We thank the local partners who support us for this 2018 edition. To succeed in achieving all the objectives we have set for this 3rd edition, we also need your donations to :

The workshops : these trainings are taught by international live performing professionals. They are essential for the professionalization of the sector.

This year we will welcome Patrick Janvier for the scenography (France). The scenography profession in Burundi does not exist yet and the artists, technicians, directors and actors who will follow this training will discover a new dimension of theater still little exploited.

Another training that will be given for this year, is contemporary dance with Wesley Ruzibiza (Rwanda). Our young dancers, mostly performing in hip-hop, will be able to open themselves to another type of dance and their choreographic practices.

Finally, the last training in acting will be given by Noël Minoungou (Burkina) who is the main actor of the play “Les Sans ..”

Each workshop will welcome 10 young artists who wish to improve and professionalize themselves. The training taking place intensively in the morning and afternoon, their meals are taken care of. Restitution shows will take place before the performances of the hosted companies.

It is important that plays could be scheduled upcountry and it requires some means such as the support of the travel expenses for the actors of the 3 plays. Their perdiem will need to be paid, their remuneration and the accommodation on the spot as well. The places chosen for these programs are “Ecole Sainte Sagesse” and “Lycée Sainte Thérèse”.

Noel Minoungou and Wesley  Ruzibiza have already a grant. The only one who still need some funds:

-Airticket of Patrick Janvier: 700€

-Visa: 60€

-Fees: 500 € for 10 days of wokshop

-Renting a house for 400€

-Meal for 200€  

Shows in upcountry :

It is important that Bujumbura will not be the only place where the plays will be performed during the festival. We wish that the theater will also be able to travel upcountry to Gitega. We will work with schools because they can accommodate the most spectators.

Here's the budget :

14 artists for that tour + 1 technician + driver + 1 coordinator.

Rental of a Bus: 600 €

Oil: 250€

Salary of the Compagny: 500€

Accomodation and Per Diem: 400€

Closing concert:

Thanks to the collect, we will be able to schedule a big closing concert with the slammer Doueslik and the musician Patrick Kabré (“Les Sans ...”) who will work with local artists and musicians to end this festival in style.

Doueslik en concert - Ouaga 2017 

Patrick Kabré en concert - Bobo Dioulasso 2017

Here's the budget :

Salary artist : 250 €/artists an amount of 500€

Rental of scenic material + sono : 200€

What if the collection works better than expected?

We would like the two artists who will make the concert to carry out 2 days of training with the Burundian Slam and musicians

 

5000 € is a lot and at the same time so little just to make this 3rd edition unforgettable for the Burundian artists and its public.

 

 

Marion Bolten will collects the entire donation. She will then transfer the entirely to the association Troupe Lampyre-having in charge the administrative management of the festival Buja without Taboo.

 

 

For the succes of this third edition, we really need you!Workshop and performances , be with us for the international theater festival: "BUJA SANS TABOU"
