Maison chaos

Joëlle Sambi

03 > 13.04.2024
Performance – Slam

Author, poet, slammer, Afrofeminist, LGBTQIA+ activist and permanent exile, Jöelle Sambi is one of the most committed figures on the current scene. Her latest creation, Maison chaos, uses forms as diverse as slam, lyrical song, electronic music, video and sound. 

Maison chaos is a show woven from committed poetry that tells of the paths we take to escape violence. The violence that pushes us to dwell on a painful memory or to seek refuge elsewhere. To take to the road to escape one’s inner demons. To listen to the wrinkles of our tormented bodies.

Joëlle Sambi is an associate artist at the Théâtre National Wallonie-Bruxelles
