Koizumi made an installation work with 15 teenagers who live in the suburb of Paris.
All of them have origins in ex-colonies. Since the terrorist attacks of 2015, French Ministry of Defense is focusing on these teenagers to join the army. First, Koizumi tried to find out what they are really thinking, and how they are responding to the situation.
Then he asked them to be on the stage for a whole day to capture them to create a “theatre” where their bodies, imaginations, and culture start to speak their own language and their own stories.
