Ymako Téatri’, a the­atre com­pa­ny based in Ivory Coast, uses street the­atre to ques­tion some con­tem­po­rary West African prob­lems. Their orig­i­nal­i­ty con­sists in using the ‘invis­i­ble the­atre’ method in order to sur­prise the public and thus make it reflect its own prob­lems. Ymako means ‘con­cern­ing you’. YMAKO shows two spec­ta­cles: one is the fight against Amer­i­can protes­tant sects and the other is people’s sen­si­ti­za­tion facing the AIDS problem.
