The Resounding Echo of the Thunder
January 20th 19:10-19:25 FRAS 1
Performance by Antonio Jose Guzman and Iva Jankovic
Featuring Percussionist Ramiro Olivares Fuchs
A brand-new experimental performance, part of their acclaimed Electric Dub Station Series: An explosive Afrofuturistic sonic dub diary, a ritualistic spoken word story on polarized societies, polarized families, segregation, war and populism. Researching subjects such as close borders, migrant roads and unwelcoming privileged white structures. On how segregating bicultural entities dehumanize black bodies, in times when empathy is almost lost in spaces of intolerance. Electric Dub Station is an ongoing project that reinterprets the transatlantic connections of indigo textiles, which are deeply embedded with the history of western colonialism. In their Afrofuturist ceremonial performances and fiber works the indigo color represents the diasporic, cultural, and economic history of textile trade and memories of ancient spirits. The textiles are developed in the artist's studio in Amsterdam Oost and block printed at Sufiyan Khatri’s Indigo Workshop in Ajrakhpur, India.
