In three acts, we see re-enactments, improvisations and interviews performed and conducted with the inhabitants of Algiers, Kythira Island and Athens. A poetic voyage moving between past, present, and imagination, putting French colonialism and the grave consequences of a collective hubris in focus.
Our second highlight from the 71st Locarno Festival is an expansive, multi-genre exploration of colonialism that connects the past to today’s migrant crisis. Madmen’s Fort is a defiant, haunting look at History: an overwhelming examination of the politics of power versus the power of utopia.
