Petit bout de bois

Theatre with puppets | Compagnie Djarama


Petit bout de bois is a puppet show about the life of street children in Senegal. Exploited by a deceptive school system, the young Souleymane finds himself on the street, forced to beg and to bring what he’s collected back to the Serignes daara, “Koranic masters” who will supposedly educate him.

A story about the courage of ressourceful children who do not give up on their dreams despite life’s hardships. (This show is only available in French without subtitles).
