This little clinic in particular, which will also be another major element of the opera village, is an important indicator of art’s powers of healing. Art can heal! Art is balm for the soul. And at some point there will surely also be a Remdoogo festival of film, music, and art. Not an attempt to compete with other creative artists in the city, but a festival that carries the radiant power of Burkina Faso out into the world. Yet it is a long way until we get there, a path to which our school will be central; we hope to open parts of it as early as this October.
He is more than what we have made him into! And more than anything he is boundless! Long live the opera village!

There is a film by the famous German director Detlef Sierck whose title, Imitation of Life, describes precisely the sensation I always felt when I was in Africa. In the countries of this continent, everything was much more concrete. It was more direct, harder, sometimes so hard that I was glad to leave as well. But the concrete life and often also the very hard struggle for survival in some African countries made me feel that I had lost myself. I had become pretty glutted and self-satisfied. And I—like all of us in Europe—lived at the expense of people who had no chance to survive or to take their lives in their own hands.
