A tragedy that shook southern Angola four hundred years ago is the subject of a play that opens this Sunday, 6th, at the Belas Conference Center, in Luanda.
According to the synopsis sent to Kianda’s mail, the Nhyaneka – Humbi, an ethnic group coming from the East of Nigeria, arrive in the Angolan territory of the North and East led by King Djinene, this in 1583. Everything changes in this King’s story when he is awakened by a spirit in his bed who told him that your eldest son should be your true successor even if he were a woman, even if Nhyaneka culture gave power to the eldest son or uncle son, but never to a woman. If she were a girl, the king would have to be wise enough to convince his subjects of this change.
Would the King know how to impose himself and make Wasanjuka his Queen daughter? Where would his biggest opposition be?
The play will start at 7pm. The Belas Conference Center is located in Futungo.
