A journalist leaves her native Congo looking for a more promising future. In mid-flight, she is overwhelmed with doubt. Has she done the right thing? The emigrant then remembers what she leaves behind, taking us with her through the busy, vibrant, colourful streets of Kinshasa. This guided tour of the woman’s memories is interwoven with casual conversations between the author and the stage director who are cooking on stage, preparing a Congolese dish that will be shared.
Part storytelling evening, part talk show and part informal meal among friends, the play, in a festive atmosphere, evokes the cultural, political and philosophical frictions that taint the relationships between the Western world and Africa.
From November 28 – December 2, 2017 at Studio 16. Presented in French with English surtitles on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Two tickets to Bibish de Kinshasa on Wednesday, November 29 at Studio 16 (1545, W 7th Avenue), 8 p.m.
