Jarmo Reha is an Estonian actor. Armel Roussel is a Belgian director. When they both met, they decided to develop a project together. Accompanied by a video maker, they traveled to Japan, India, and Senegal, looking for something that could change their perspective. Out of this geographical and also inner journey was born a solo piece in English – funny and deep at the same time. Both artists consider the performance as a gift towards the public. At the 10th Monodrama Festival, they will present the first part (Japan) of a project that has more parts and chapters.
Armel Roussel is a French Belgian film and theatre director. In 1996 he founded his own company (E)Utopia based in Brussels. He also works as an actor, performer, writer, and teacher.
