LA KASBAH, MON AMOUR
Saturday 19th November| 8:15 pm | Chiroux
ÔThéâtre – GEC Marrakech
(60’ / French and Moroccan dialect)
The legendary history of a district of Marrakech serves as a backdrop for this pleasant and exotic show, all in parables. In a context of tumultuous alleys where inhabitants of different religions rub shoulders: itinerant merchants, shopkeepers, beggars, storytellers and of course countless women. The Kasbah, a neighbourhood where cultures and civilisations live together, a place of inter-religious dialogue where Muslims, Jews and Christians live in harmony. A model of civilisation, tolerance and peaceful cohabitation. Kamal is an extraordinary character, so extraordinary that he could be mistaken for a fiction. Yet here he is, on stage, invited to tell the story of his life. Kamal has seen and done almost everything. On stage, Kamal talks unfiltered about his adventures, his memories, his hopes, his doubts, and about “Jamila”, the beautiful and mysterious neighbour who has become a fortress. Kamal is madly in love with her; a courteous love sublimated to the extreme. An hour of concentrated life that contains a thousand lives, where reality and fiction become one. An exposure that illuminates us.
