Vita Siyo Muchezo Ya Watoto

Frédérique Lecomte takes Belgian theatre students and actors, including KVS face Valentijn Dhaenens, on a journey to East Congo. Together with local actors, they create a performance with and about child soldiers. At the same time, the play takes issue with the peace industry: international development aid is a million-dollar business, but in the end, who’s helping who?
Vita Siyo Muchezo Ya Watoto (War is not a child’s game) will premiere in Goma this summer, on squares and in pastures, for thousands of bystanders. In autumn the production tours Belgian theatres, where the cast of Congolese, Burundian and Belgian artists will be complemented with asylum seekers and refugees. Leveraging the question ‘What do we have in common with child soldiers?’, the performance sheds light on how the situations ‘here’ and ‘there’ are interconnected.
