SISONKE - as long as we're together
An international co-production of Dschungel Wien (Austria) and IYASA (Zimbabwe) and MAKEMAKE productions (Austria)
10 actors and dancers from Zimbabwe, Germany, Austria and Switzerland are questioning their roots, life habits and their country through theatre, dance, music and singing.
What value do their family and relationships have in those different cultures? How do they deal with prejudices and clichés? What do I want to say about myself, what do I want to know about the others - what stories do we tell each other on an afternoon together?
Based on research in Zimbabwe and Austria by the performers and directors, "SISONKE" was put together.
