Koffi Kwahulé: Jazz As An Inspiration For Theatre

With more than thirty plays to his credit and being honored with many awards, Koffi Kwahulé remains today one of the most widely performed African drama writers at the international level. While the works of Kwahulé, often decorated with musical notes, make the audience journey into a strange and an original world, a serenity reminiscent of jazz gives the author its musical tone. Jazz accompanying and enriching Kwahulé's theater works, also adds an irregular rhythm to the progress of his texts. At times panting and sometimes jerky, jazz is the cornerstone of the author's dramaturgical writing. Known globally and in Turkey for his well-toured works Brasserie, Big Shoot, Blue-S-Cat and preparing to stage L’odeur des arbres, Kwahulé will discuss the influence of jazz on his writing in light of the relationship between these two artistic disciplines.
