On his epic and moving journey from the Mali Empire to the city of Mecca, Mansa Musa endeavours to find a route towards hope and belonging by any means necessary.
A solo performance, adorned with poetry and prose, this brand new play is created by Yan Toby-Amisi, the writer of the Iris Summer Festival’s hit event – Blud.
