Act 1: The Other Dakar
In this vibrant dream-like VR film, we follow the journey of a little girl who gets a message that will guide her to a series of encounters with mythological beings in The Other Dakar. The everyday urban Daka’ becomes a stage of experimentation for its creator, the Senegalese fashion designer Selly Raby Kane, resulting in a homage to Senegalese mythology. Limina finds a surreal Alice in Wonderland-ness to the piece: the audience are invited to go through the metaphorical ‘looking glass’ to experience another side of the Senegalese capital.
“The Other Dakar is a manifesto in a sense, it is for me a way to reconnect the urban space with its mythology and to use design and creativity as a platform for the invisible Dakar to express her uniqueness.” — Selly Raby Kane
