CONAKRY – GUINEA / 2021
Created in 2012, L’Univers des Mots is a biennial international theater festival that fosters contemporary West-African writing. Artistic residences are organized for young authors to stage their plays with actors and directors from West Africa and Europe. Their plays are showcased in different places around town, where the festival also organizes exhibits, performances, events and debates.
This festival, its events and shows will be aired on radio – a vital communication and news media in Guinea – so that they may be heard beyond the city of Conakry. For the 2021 edition, Kirah Radio will broadcast the rehearsed readings, talks and reports to a wider audience via Facebook, Telegram and various local radio stations in Guinea.
