A powerful exploration of one of the world’s most intriguing, yet little known female rulers. Born in ancient Angola into a patriarchal society, Nzinga defied tradition to become Queen aged 50 with the aim of keeping her people safe from the Portuguese slave traders. A true story of unrivalled determination, incredible wit, intelligence and resilience. Mara Menzies stars in this performance examining the challenges Nzinga faced as a woman, questioning femininity, spirituality and the thin line between right and wrong. With live percussion, physical performance and storytelling theatre.
