With Bouazizi, Insectotròpics experiment with their unique artistic language – a fusion of theatre, music and the visual arts. An on-going dialogue between technology and plasticity moves between pre-recording and live improvisation, a mix between documentary and fiction, a world of dream and mythological dimensions which takes us to the unconventional corners of the common imagination.

‘Bouazizi’, the man who everyone has heard of but who no one knows his name. Insectotròpics present a poetic journey freely inspired by the life and death of Mohamed Bouazizi, a young street vendor, suffocated by mistreatment from police and economic hardship, who on 17 December 2010 publicly set himself alight. A totally unexpected event caused his gesture to create a legend for millions of people, igniting the “Arab Spring.”

‘Bouazizi’ is a story about the power of the people against The Power, about the negree of power an individual holds with respect to the system. A story that could be ours. Maybe it will be soon…
