With live music, dance and poetry, Israel Akpan Sunday conveys the West African tradition of collective storytelling and transfers it to the Central European context. The artists will engage in an open exchange with the audience about the motivations behind the play and its significance for society. All are welcome to ask questions, express their opinions, or simply listen. Historical and political events surrounding the play can be topic of discussion as well. How is historical knowledge dealt with in Nigeria/Germany today? What meaning(s) do cultural and ritual customs/ceremonies/celebrations still have for us today?
Tickets (10,- reduced. / 15,- regular) can be purchased online and the following audience talk directly after the performance is free of charge.
