Run - don’t walk, skip or even scurry... devastatingly funny... deliciously dark-humoured... whip-smart... stylistically inventive... brilliant. This is, indeed, another Africa than the one you think you know.

Another Africa

WRITTEN BY BINYAVANGA WAINAINA AND ROLAND SCHIMMELPFENNING

DRAMATURGE BY WEYNI MENGESHA

Another Africa was an international commission of two plays examining the relationship between Africa and the west.  Mengesha was the company dramaturge for Volcano Theatre through four years of development, working closely with the playwrights and directors.  The project incorporated artists from more than 15 countries around the world.

The hands down show stopper of Luminato... smart, irreverent, challenging and brilliantly directed and acted.

This... will be a huge hit - and deservedly so ...beautifully written, deeply poetic... immaculate... top-notch. Two plays, each offering a different window of experience on how the West and the African continent relate to each other.
