Play in theater is an excellent liberation tool. This artistic expressions field is also a
canal to evacuate inhibited impulses and to liberate people from repression. Thus, TOTART
is a mind freeing platform and helps to conquest the sense of identity first by releasing
the spirit, the gesture and the word. As the play is an artistic literary, as a factor of
the imaginary, as a source of creativity, and a mean to debunk the dream, TOTART offers to
the immigrant coming from francophone countries, some appropriated psychosocial
development structures propitious to the appropriation of his cultural identity, and then
to his personal blossoming into this adoptive nation.
The francophone international play troop is formed of francophone comedians and non
francophone others, who would be interested in learning French and/or Creole languages. It has been created into the artistic and cultural
diversity and then it functions as so for the promotion of the francophone countries
literature which have an important immigrant community living in the U.S.A. Its cultural
and artistic activities would help as in popularizing the Creole and French languages in
making vulgar some literary creations in the Diasporas coming from francophone countries.
This troop reunites together comedians from different origins and makes them met while
appropriating their mother language into the U.S.A. and shared their cultural folk

sectaries and racism. TOTART is and will stay an open stage to work for the psychosocial
development, and then the human one.
