A personal journal of colonialism brought to life.

Text & Performance: Mbene Mwambene; Concept & Direction: Ntando Cele, Mbene Mwambene; Light & Sound: Bharathi M. Franaszek & Valerio Rodelli. Premiere: Schlachthaus Theater Bern, 2019. Produced by Insaka Arts.

The Whispers is a solo physical performance, that brings a personal journey of colonialism to life. It’s a response to both the colonial and current perspective of being black using storytelling, poetry, sarcasm, music, and body movement. Mbene Mwambene traces his family history, asking is a modern Black man free to choose who he becomes? What does it mean to decolonize oneself when living in Europe? What does it mean to have a name?

The Whispers has been performed at Schlachthaus Theater Bern, Konstanz University, Theater Konstanz, Schwankhalle in Bremen, Theater am Lend Graz, Lichthoft Theater Hamburg und Stadthaus Ulm. The German version “Das Flüstern” was presented at LurUPina – Zirkusfestival Hamburg and at the Jahrmarkttheater Bostelwiebeck.
