A staged reading of George Bwanika Seremba's new play
directed by Jen Capraru

Napolean of the Nile is a play about survival against all odds, for the lucky few who manage to survive the exodus only to find that Africa's long unending nightmare does not end with the crossing of a border. The play makes use of Africa's myths, folklore and legends, as well as ritual, song and dance. Sometimes it makes surrealist leaps into the fantastic; at times, its most eloquent statement is the silence punctuated by bombs and bullets.

George Seremba is in residence at Brown as an IWP fellow. He was shot repeatedly and left for dead by Uganda's special military police and has been in exile from Uganda for the past few decades. He is a playwright, performer and theater scholar.
