English— Banel and Adama are fiercely in love. The young married couple lives in a remote village in northern Senegal. For them, nothing else exists. Yet their perfect everlasting love is on a collision course with their community’s customs. Because in this world, there is no room for passion, let alone chaos.
Français – Banel et Adama sont farouchement amoureux. Le jeune couple marié vit dans un village isolé du nord du Sénégal. Pour eux, rien d’autre n’existe. Pourtant, leur amour parfait et éternel se heurte aux coutumes de leur communauté. Car dans ce monde, il n’y a pas de place pour la passion, encore moins pour le chaos.

We acknowledge that we are gathered on ancestral lands; Treaty 1 territory, the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples, and on the National Homeland of the Red River Métis.
We recognize and honour Treaty 3 Territory Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, the source of Winnipeg’s clean drinking water. In addition, we acknowledge Treaty Territories which provide us with access to electricity we use in both our personal and professional lives.
Acknowledging this truth is important to the Gas Station Arts Centre, yet we acknowledge that it is only a small part of cultivating and protecting strong relationships with Indigenous communities.
