WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Belgian playwright Serge Goriely turns conventional notions of voodoo on their heads with his Strindbergian play of magic, lies and intolerance, The Sorcerers.
The play is a modernist work about a Caucasian European photojournalist from a liberal family who has gone to Africa in his work and fallen in love with an African woman. He brings her back to Belgium and marries her, not anticipating resistance from his relatives and Belgian society to his very ordinary act. Weirdly, his open-minded, progressive family casts a spell on her.
