The Big Mzungu of Kilwa Kivinje
The Big Mzungu of Kilwa Kivinje:

The Big Mzungu of Kilwa Kivinje is our first work as a company, and we are keen to show our project to the New York theatrical community.  Created and directed by Samuel James Wilson, with music by Lon Kaiser, performed and developed by a cast of four intrepid actors, The Big Mzungu tells the story of a white New Yorker gone to Tanzania to bury the body of his African wife in her homeland.  Along the highway B2 that runs from Dar-Es-Salaam to Mozambique, the truck in which he travels is stuck in the mud, and the Earth begins to swallow the vehicle

Blending fable and raw storytelling, music and movement, The Big Mzungu is a timely exploration of the politics of death.

Created & Directed by Samuel James Wilson

Musical Direction & Composition by Lon Kaiser

Developed & Performed by Bradley J. Sumner, Joy Notoma, Dwayne Daniels II & Rhonda Khan

Poster Art by Luba Lukova


About Theatre In Exile:

Theatre in Exile is a new theatre company based in Brooklyn, NY, whose purpose is to uncover timeless and hyper-immediate narratives of global relevance with a socio-political context that lives in the spirit of the time.

Founded in the winter of 2013 by writer and director Samuel James Wilson, TIE was designed to give artists greater autonomy in the structural and visual development of the pieces they are called to work on.

Our inaugural production, "The Big Mzungu of Kilwa Kivinje" meshes live music and movement with a stirring story that is as unique as it is accessible, blending experimentation and simplicity with evocative power.
