camara

 

The performance is created from the oral history of the friendship between Wagul Camara, who had immigrated from Mauritania to France in the 1960s, and Makiko Ueda who is also an immigrant from Japan. In the performance, I speak the language morphing from French to Japanese. 

EXTRACT  *please start from 2’48, to listen to the morphing voice.
