«Clash of Gods» is theatre, dance, DJ-set and audio-visual media collage. The performance by Thomas Burkhalter and Christophe Jaquet leads midst into the battle for cultural, political, moral interpretations and definitions of our world. Two gods clash over the state of the world. They use all means that the stage offers to overcome the others arguments: dancers, lights, sounds, language, photography, and video. At times war is total. No moral rules seem to stop these two from attacking, weakening, denigrating and ridiculing the other. Never underestimate the power of the two gods. Welcome to the theatre of our time.

«This is the beginning. This is the beginning of what will happen in Europe in the next fifty years. The impact of African music in Europe music will be incredible. Every time that you switch a TV on and you see immigrants, immigrants, immigrants, it means an alien culture is coming, and we’ll take over. We change the rules. So it’s good if you start documenting that. Because the impact will be quite strong.» Michè Calandra Achode

«On a reflective journey of a privileged white man. What can be your role in this redefining phase. I think your role can only be a humble one. Take the back seat and feel privileged of taking that back seat. Enjoy the view while recognizing all the luggage that you may bring with you. And if you have ways of making things visible. Ask how you can be of use. You’re not driving here.  And you’re lucky to be enjoying the view. Be curious.  Be open-minded. Have your eyes wide open, your ears wide open. So don’t try to come with good willing intentions because those good willing intentions are loaded with history, genealogy of violence and authoritarianism that goes beyond you. So yeah, take the back seat and feel privileged for enjoying the view.» Jenny Mbaye
