From the event’s page:

Donkomi Dialogues is an Afrofuturistic dance drama that engages with how social and digital interactions create opportunities for gendered power relations to thrive. Using West African cultural symbols in community storytelling as a point of departure, space is explored beyond its context as crucible for interactions; implied in both the production of individual identities and social inequalities. Donkomi Dialogues breaks the "fourth wall" that traditionally separates the performer from the audience. Written and directed by Kwame Write Aidoo in collaboration with The Architects’ Project, Inkfluent, Dzomoko Productions, Yoo.Maj, Artmosphield, Eden City Records, Jamestown Gbeke Bii and supported by Alliance Française d’Accra.
