AfroPolitan Berlin – Performance-Panorama 2022
Supported Artists & Performances
Space and Time Improvisation by FemBlack Performance Collective
“Space and Time Improvisation by FemBlack Performance Collective is an afrofuturistic performance which explores the notion of Black bodies, collective healing process and unity through time zones (past, present and future) and improvisation.”
“Being a Black Woman” by Naomi Bah
“Starting from her solo, in which Naomi Bah illuminates her personal, social and social situation as a Black woman in the predominantly white society and embarks on an intimate journey with the audience, she takes the Performance Panorama as an opportunity to enter into dialogue with other Black women and create new content. The attempt to document and manifest Black female voices in a kind of video collage.”
Where do your monsters hide? by Day Eve Komet
“Where do your monsters hide is a working theatre piece that explores the multiplicity of being. What do you do with a world that fails to understand, that you can not always understand?
Perhaps you make a new world or perhaps you just…….”
What is a Mulatto? by Jota Ramos
“In Brazil, the feeling of racial democracy is deconstructed as we discuss the whitening policies inserted by governments that valued white aesthetics and, as a consequence, the violence practised by white men against enslaved black women. The discourse that the mulatto is the expression of Brazilianness and Brazilian beauty is undone, since the authorization for extra-racial unions was aimed at the “improvement” of the race. “Mulatto” is the person who assumes the racist discourse and wants to approach whiteness; “negro” is the person who is conscious and committed to their people, their identity, and their cultural heritage. The mulatto is Negro.”
Die intensivste Leichtigkeit // ZOOM
“but I want to get back to the core of me
Where it’s so dark that no eyes could ever see
Where it’s so deep that no arms could ever reach
Where it’s so silent that no ears will be in need
fucking stop looking and start to breath
Am I an artist or actually an autist or an orphan or all of ‘em or none of the above? –
Maybe I m God…“
