The program poster of OH BOYOMA with all the lyrics of the production
The first contact with the theatre had Elia Rediger, front man of the Basel pop band The bianca story, at the age of ten, when he had to sing a reception song for a certain Mr. Schlingensief at the Badischer train station in Basel in the choir. Since then, he has not let go of the theater. In the 2015/16 season he was part of the Stücklabor Basel Hausautor at the Konzert Theater Bern. In collaboration with five artists from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rediger, who himself was born in Kinshasa, developed the play “Oh Boyoma – 387 verses on a city without a name”. The world premiere took place in June 2017 at the Konzert Theater Bern.
