THE LEGEND OF SANTIAGO -- Ivory Coast
Based on the novel The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
With: Simon Aka
Produced by Tropic Expression Theatre
Duration: approx. 60 min.
Santiago, a young man learning to become a catholic
priest, suddenly decides to stop his studies and live a shepherd’s
life. His goal is simple and clear: to travel and discover the
world. He repeatedly dreams the same dream in which he must
reach the Egyptian desert to find a treasure buried in the Pyramids.
During his travels, he meets many spiritual messengers, all
of whom point Santiago in the direction of his quest. No one
knows, however, what the treasure is, or if Santiago is able
to surmount the obstacles along the way. But what starts as
a journey to find worldly goods turns into a discovery of the
treasures found within.
Evocative and deeply humane, the story of Santiago, told with
the help of the means of the experimental theatre, is the story
about the transforming power of our dreams and the importance
of listening to our hearts.
