Where Is Your Fire

«Where Is Your Fire» (2021) is a mourning ritual drawing on archival material of Black Abolitionist women retracing the story of a lost 19th century court case of the murder of a Herero Princess and a stolen African German theatre script. The artist follows the multiple routes of Black Feminist writers interlaced with botanical colonial fictions transmitting testimonies of anti-colonial struggles and warnings in the mythical spirit of Drexciyan uprising.

The performance takes place as part of Unexpected Lessons – Decolonizing Memory and Knowledge on June 11th at 20.30 h, livestreamed online.
