A one-man satire set in pre-colonial, traditional Africa, on how Kings could rule until death.
Come and travel across the world of dictators with Silvanos Mudzvova.
This one-man play is supported by the live performance of traditional African instruments, played by Mbada, a white British man.
Silvanos Mudzvova is a Zimbabwean playwright, theatre director, filmmaker and activist. He is based in the Drama Department within The University of Manchester as part of a year-long residency facilitated by the Artist Protection Fund, a programme of the New York-based Institute of International Education.
The performance will be followed by a public seminar on Tuesday 19 December, bringing together a range of speakers to discuss artists' rights and protection internationally.
The seminar will take place in the Martin Harris Centre, and is jointly hosted by The University of Manchester and the Artist Protection Fund.
