The black memory (english)
PROPOSED THEATRE PIECE “THE BLACK MEMORY”
Dear friends, the New Year 2017 has just started and I have a
dream that I would like to achieve. It is a theater project “The Black
Memory” described below. In order to realize this project, which will be
put in place by an all-Ugandan troupe, including the director and professional
actors, we need a budget of approximately 9 to 10 thousand Euros, which includes
everything (see attached “Expense Items”).
Whoever wishes to support the realization of this project can do it with a contribution according to their means.
The contribution can be paid to the following account:

Production and staging of the play “The Black Memory”
The main character of “The Black Memory” is Songay, who represents collective memory. He leads the audience into a kind of journey including both oral and written representations handed down from generation to generation. He clearly explores little known, or altogether unknown aspects of Africa, from past to present.
The purpose of this monologue is to awaken the memory of people who continue to behave as if nothing has happened, hence the great need for remembering! Once memory is rescued from oblivion and brought to light, it will become the new black identity, the identity of humanity as a whole.
The production of The Black Memory, both as a stage play and a video, will have great social impact through the use of story-telling. It will serve as a vehicle to empower people by providing a knowledge and information platform to discuss issues regarding slavery and its changing traits to this day. It will act as a wakeup call to search for viable solutions and restore the continent’s glory.
