Artists for Joint Performance
Concluding a four-week Arts residency at Rwanda Arts Initiative(RAI) in partnership with Kigali Goethe Institut is Relocating Narratives, a live event, which is to bring together a group of eight Artists into collaborative performance cautioning, while drawing contrast and comparative narratives about the environment.
Facilitated by guest
Artists Alla Popp and Sarah Wenzinger, the event taking place at the Rwanda
Arts Initiative, Kimihurura on December 7, will feature works by Artists Greta
Ingabire, Yannick N. Kamanzi, Louise Mutabazi, Kivumbi King, Eric 1key, Natacha
Muziramakenga, Alla Popp and Sarah Wenzinger , all of various art forms, who
all seek to explore different levels of perspective and perception in a non-linear
conversation about the connection of past, present, future and the
transformative possibilities of reassembling narratives for the future
Linear timelines are cancelled. We are surrounded by voices, thoughts, organisms, systems of order, master plans, micro cosmos, the invisible, the past, the living world, 4.55 billion years old stones, and all that we cannot recognize. How do we “make sense”, how can we communicate with it, how can we think of a common future?
Augmented reality, sound, poetry, and performance allow us to discover and link new narratives beyond linearity. We invite you to an evening without order and answer. Together we want to raise new questions and practice transformation: It remains complicated.
“It matters what matters we use to think other matters with; it matters what stories we tell to tell other stories with; it matters what knots knot knots, what thoughts think thoughts, what descriptions describe descriptions, what ties tie ties. It matters what stories make worlds, what worlds make stories.”
