Five orphaned children from a poor neighborhood in the Nigerian megacity Lagos, meet a fat white man on a white canvas. Childish innocence meets the feared foreigner, complete with chocolate. African lack of opportunity meets stereotypical European guilt, contemporary Nigerian dance meets European conceptual theatre. This cannot go well, you suspect, and suddenly you find yourself in the middle of an absurdly comical horror film, complete with vampires. But who’s sucking whose blood here? German performance group Monster Truck, in collaboration with Nigerian company The Footprints of David, don’t shy away from any cliché and wade into the shallows of post-colonial art discourse.
