The solo ›The Whispers‹ is a journey from slavery to colonialism. With the means of storytelling, music and dance, Mbene Mwambene follows his own path in life and retraces the history of his family. In doing so, he raises bigger questions: Can a young, open-minded African – in this case from Zambia and Malawi – freely choose what he would like to become? How can he decolonize himself in Europe? Can he even undermine common stereotypes with his own body? And is theater the adequate medium for this?
