Situations Suivantes (Further Situations) explores the political context of copper miners in South Africa by the prism of the construction of a comedy series. A writer’s team gathers to plan the new season of this TV series taking place in the city of Durban. The South-African writer’s room of this apparently light sitcom dictated by viewership highlights at the contrary a crucial attention on the socio-economical situation of the country, between security, social justice, gay rights and a strong political commitment of the characters. This fictional brainstorming blends constructions and contradictions in a playful and symbolic behind closed doors mise en scène.
