The performance is a musical–historical journey through Cameroon, Turkey, Russia and France. It places Africa at the centre of the French⁄Russian links from the 18–1900s and investigates the African diaspora’s two great historical figures: Russian scientist Abraham Pétrovitch Hanibal (1696 – 1781) and his successor, one of Russia’s great authors, Alexander Pushkin (1799 – 1837). Pushkin had virtually a direct link to Norway. His maternal grandfather, Abraham Hanibal, married a Swedish noblewoman, Christina von Sjöberg, who was a direct descendant of the famous Dano–Norwegian Admiral Lauritz Galtung of the 1600s, approximately 1615 – 1661. The performance is based on texts and poems taken from Hanibal and Pushkin.
