Kuzikiliza brings three very different men to the stage who together wish to make a speech. For them, ideal communication, which is their natural goal, is based on three elements: text, sound and movement. The men complement one another: each has a talent for a single element, but these different talents also represent their dark side.

Kuzikiliza – “making yourself heard” in Swahili – is a multilingual, interdisciplinary performance that causes communication and its mechanisms to wobble. Pitcho Womba Konga’s starting point was Patrice Lumumba’s speech to mark Congo’s independence on 30 June 1960 – a speech that is still topical today. For surely behind the independence of a country lies the emancipation of an entire people; and surely, behind the emancipation of a people, lies the independence of every human being? How do we reconcile the present and the past while the process of decolonisation is still ongoing?
