'A Mouthful of Africa' is a collaborative theatre production focusing on stories of African political, social and edible food. The African exiled writer/performers portray the ambivalent imagery of memories of home food and yearning in the place of exile. Their concerns of the personal interact with the political significance of food in areas disrupted by war and migration, with edible food being an integral part of the production!
There will be post-performance discussion and an opportunity to enjoy an African buffet.

Handsen Chikowore, Shona speaking poet from Zimbabwe,
