A statue of the 12th century West African princess Yennenga comes to life in the basement of a Munich ethnological museum and wants to return home. An Afronaut from the future, who has quit her job as a post-colonial ghost hunter, dreams of the princess and uses every technology to try and contact Yennenga’s homeland. The performances always connect the Kammerspiele to another location in the world, starting with Lomé, Togo and other cities in West Africa. The ensemble performs in both places simultaneously and is connected via a live camera feed. In this way, audiences can go to the theatre together even though they are 7,000 km apart. The evening is a loose sequel to the production “Wir Schwarzen müssen zusammenhalten – Eine Erwiderung” (“We Blacks Must Stick Together – A Rejoinder”) and is the first directorial collaboration between the renowned Burkinabe choreographer Serge Aimé Coulibaly and Jan-Christoph Gockel, in-house director at the Münchner Kammerspiele.

Eine Produktion der Münchner Kammerspiele in Koproduktion mit La Fabrik, Lomé. Gefördert durch die Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien im Programm NEUSTART KULTUR, Hilfsprogramm DIS-TANZEN/ tanz:digital/ DIS-TANZ-START des Dachverband Tanz Deutschland und den Internationalen Koproduktionsfonds des Goethe-Instituts.
