#WIPCOOP SESSIONS: DIVIDE AND RULE – Khalid Koujili El Yakoubi

Divide and Rule is a musical narration about a series of events, with far-reaching and unseen consequences, that turn an entire continent upside down.

One of the many leaders of an ancient and unknown continent did not appear at the annual celebration. His absence was very unusual and did not go unnoticed. It turned out that an intruder had set foot on the continent whose inhabitants had never met anyone from another continent.

DIVIDE AND RULE is a fictional documentary – with references to historical facts and figures such as: the race of Arfrika, the Berlin Conference, Leopold II, Otto von Bismarck, …

A story about the conquest and occupation of states that could just as well have been non-fiction.

CREDITS Text and performance: Khalid Koujili El Yakoubi – Soundscape: Alec De Bruyn. With the support of Mestizo Arts Platform / WIPCOOP and Rataplan
