Experience a high-powered, ultra-modern play of love and lust.
Combining spoken word, physicality and music, Amsterdam follows Chanje as she is seduced by the attractions of the titular city and the charms of a Surinamese man she met on holiday.
Wonder at her fate as she embarks on a voyage into the unknown in this truly 21st-century play.
About Africa Utopia
In 2012 Southbank Centre launched Africa Utopia, a festival dedicated to bringing art and ideas from Africa and the African diaspora to audiences in the UK. We ask what the West can learn from this rapidly changing continent.
The festival’s first four years have featured the award-winning Senegalese musician and human-rights activist Baaba Maal, afrobeat legend Tony Allen, former First Lady of Somaliland and hospital founder Edna Adan, Kenyan creative collective The Nest, Township Tech originator Spoek Mathambo, ‘godfather of Ethiopian jazz’ Mulatu Astatke and the Kinshasa Symphony orchestra.
