This Funzing Experience:

The story of Thomas Sankara populist revolutionary and reformist who championed justice and equality for the people of Burkina Faso takes centre stage at the Camden Fringe festival this month.

Written and directed by Riccardo Dujany, the play "SANKARA" charts the turbulent changes to Burkina Faso’s political scene in the 1980s, following Sankara’s successful ousting of the corrupt French imperialist rulers.

Produced by the Kernel Theatre Company with an all-black cast of actors, the 90 minute production explores how Sankara’s marxist and pan-African philosophy fight against the odious debt and imperialism, incurring the resentment of the Burkinabè middle class, the French colonial rulers and the world’s political leaders.

It also looks at the man’s passion for justice and gender equality – he was the first African president to appoint women to his cabinet and he was amongst the first in Africa to promote mass vaccination and refuse foreign aid.
