MOTSWANA: Africa Dream Again. ENCORE 

Performed by Donald MolosiBotswana

Mon 11/16 7:30pm

drama, comedy, storytelling, 30 min.

MOTSWANA simply means “citizen of Botswana.” The Republic of Botswana is one of Africa’s wealthiest countries. This intimate mutilingual show satirically questions who exactly can claim to be a Motswana. What unexpected revelations pring up once we acknowledge that African borders were drawn as a fiction fabricated to serve European greed? Is “Motswana” perhaps a misnomer given the migratory nature of African peoples before borders? Show image by Yobe Shonga & Oarabile Tome. Recommended for: all audiences.
