Bibish de Kinshasa

Tue, Nov 28 - Sat, Dec 2

1555 W 7th Ave, Vancouver, BC V6J 1S1, Canada map

Théâtre la Seizième presents its next show:
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.
Produced by Hôtel-Motel
Written by Marie-Louise Bibish Mumbu
Directed and adapted by Philippe Ducros
With Gisèle Kayembe and Marie-Louise Bibish Mumbu, Philippe Ducros, Papy Maurice Mbwiti
Production team Manon Claveau, Thomas Godefroid, Caroline Turcot, Julie Vallée-Léger
