BAZAR9+
= mess, debris, garbage, shambles, junk, clutter, muddle, chaos, disarray, mayhem

What if the hubbub of the world begins to resemble music from a horror film?
What if you lose your way in the jumble of your thoughts?
What if your imagination runs so wild that it takes your breath away?

You look for a place where you can be alone. You shut yourself off. You throw away the key. Your world shrinks and becomes dull and silent. Really silent. And then?

BAZAR is a story about apprehension about life, about an over-active imagination and losing one’s way. Until someone comes along and helps you unravel the jumble in your head.

Aminata Demba is fascinated by the resilience of children in precarious situations. For BAZAR she considers how fear can take on crippling proportions. As in Binta’s inner room (selected for Het TheaterFestival 2021), Aminata draws inspiration from conversations and workshops with children and adults.
