Paris. November 2005.

Too young to be adults and too old to be children.

Five colleagues from a Paris banlieue get together one night to burn the car of someone very rich. For a few days, several fires have been set in different places, destroying vehicles. The children of the children of immigrants who arrived in the country with nothing still feel aliens to him. Europe does not offer them those values that crown its flag. And the streets and the news are filled with an atmosphere that could be revolution or war, hope or  unrest. An environment that can destroy illusions and friendships.

GAZOLINE takes the witness of the RAZAS project with the aim of making visible and promoting ethnic diversity in the performing arts.

Premiere: APRIL 25, 2019 | Count Duke Theater
