Birth of a project
After a year and a half of gestation, Tikulu comes to life for the first time in September 2014 on the stage of the MGI in a show sung and danced 100% Mauritian.
He was born from cross desire ofEva Caillé and Thabo Legrand
(Directors of Dance School Studio and Company OMADA), the publisher Pascale Siew (directrice des Editions VIZAVI)
as well as the scriptwriter Bertrand d’Unienville.
Lasting one hour thirty, this musical show is articulated around a ten songs strong> that structure the action and act as narrative. Written in kreol morisien strong> with winks to the other languages spoken in Mauritius, the songs are resolutely light strong> and humorous strong> in agreement with the state of mind of Tikulu and his friends.
The adventure takes place partly in the real world, strong> which is the frame in which are evoked Mauritius strong> of today, its beauty, its natural wealth , its diversity but also its environmental issues. In contrast, a dream world strong> sublimates the values attached to the discovery of the other, to civility and friendship. Guided by a delicate and caring bird, Tikoulou and Marilou Fé go in search of a hidden treasure which is the red thread of history. It will prove to be a richness that we can share to infinity without ever exhausting it.
The performances of the show strong> h2>
The first public performances strong> of the show were held at the Mahatma Gandhi Institute strong> in September 2014. Other performances are subsequently dedicated to a school audience, particularly ZEP schools and associations whose action focuses on childhood.
