Aimé Césaire's A Season in the Congo this Summer in London

by Aimé Césaire
From a translation by Ralph Manheim 

6 July - 17 August 2013



BAFTA Award winning director Joe Wright (Anna Karenina, Atonement, Pride & Prejudice) directs Olivier Award winner Chiwetel Ejiofor (BBC2's Dancing on the Edge, Othello at the Donmar Warehouse, Children of Men, Dirty Pretty Things) in the UK premiere of an epic retelling of a vibrant nation’s turbulent first year of freedom.

Pulsing with music and bursting with dance choreographed by the acclaimed Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, this gripping drama charts the rise and fall of legendary leader Patrice Lumumba, whose passionate determination to free his people from Belgian rule inspired great courage and betrayal.
