In this charged, political performance, three Africans living in Belgium attempt to solve the complex migration­integration dilemma. Their answer? A new country for African-­Europeans and European-­Africans, where they themselves determine the norms. The performers introduce their ideas to their new promised land to the audience, discussing and debating them before it is left to the audience to vote.

Instead of dwelling on the glass ceiling for African immigrants in Europe, the performance boldly proposes a utopian future. What will it be: “Africa United” or “New Africa”?
