On march 17, Art For All goes to: Koko Slam Gang

A poetic and intergenerational show combining song, dance, stories and memories, presented by eight Congolese grandmothers. With the two poets Joëlle Sambi, Raissa Yowali and the Kokos (“grandmother” in Lingala), the cast is strong and the story promises to be beautiful, combative and full of poetry, just like these three generations of Congolese women who share the stage. What do the grandmothers know that the younger ones do not yet know? What are their secrets, those that are kept for a lifetime? Their loves? Their struggles? For whom do they lay down their gloves? What do they pass on from their native land? Belgium, the Congo, intertwined and paradoxical, small and big history, it is the Koko Slam Gang that sets them up as a popular festival with humour and audacity. Songs, dances, tales and memories make up a marvelous intergenerational show to be seen with the whole family, and which (small) children will particularly appreciate. Long live the Koko Slam Gang!

We meet up with the group at Globe Aroma at 19h.
