In January 2021, Dorine Mokha, died very suddenly at just 31 years of age. One year before, his solo ENTRE DEUX: TESTAMENT had its premiere in Kaserne Basel. In this third and last part of his autobiographical trilogy project (after ENTRE DEUX (2013) and ENTRE DEUX II, LETTRE À GUZ (2015)), Dorine Mokha dealt with the brutal state of tension between his own, queer identity and the repressive pressure of the Congolese society. Dorine's beauty and strength on that evening was overwhelming. We can no longer show ENTRE DEUX: TESTAMENT at SPIELART. However, there is a film of the same name, which was produced in collaboration with his cousin Franck Moka, and which documents Dorine Mokha's life in the Democratic Republic of Congo and puts it in connection with excerpts from the performance. With Dorine, not only a great artist, but above all, an exceptionally brave human being and activist has departed from us. (S.B.)
