Media Rewind. De-Colonize the Mind

Media rewind. De-Colonize the mind
Eintritt: 7/5 (erm.) €

 

 


Das Spontaneous town meeting ist eine interdisziplinäre Jam Session im Talkshow­Format, die im Rahmen der Reihe WE ARE TOMORROW – Visionen und Erinnerung anlässlich der Berliner Konferenz von 1884 monatlich stattfinden wird. Der Jazzmusiker Jean­Paul Bourelly lädt Musiker_innen und Schriftsteller_innen, DJs, Electronic Musikern,  Historiker_innen und Schauspieler_innen zu einem afrofuturistischen Treffen ein, um die Pforten eines Schwarzen kollektiven Wissensarchivs zu öffnen. In Interaktion zwischen Sprache und Musik, Gästen und Publikum, Emotion und Didaktik werden aktuelle und historische Diskurse verhandelt, um neue Akzente zu setzen und Perspektiven zu entwickeln, die bisher durch das Setting ihrer Verhandlung begrenzt schienen. Diskussionen über die Situation der in Berlin lebenden Geflüchteten, die Zerstörung familiärer Beziehungen durch die Kontinuität kolonialer Verhältnisse, die Machtdynamik zwischen dem alten Europa und dem neuen Afrika bekommen so eine unbekannte Vielfalt an frischen Blickwinkeln und Interpretationsmöglichkeiten.

ENGLISH

The Spontaneous Town Meeting is an interdisciplinary jam session in the format of a talk show taking place every month in the context of the series WE ARE TOMORROW – Visions and Retrospection on Occasion of the 1884 Berlin Conference. Jazz musician Jean­Paul Bourelly invites musicians and writers, DJs, historians and actors to an afro-futuristic meeting in order to open up the gates of a Black collective knowledge archive. In an interaction between language and music, guests and audience, emotion and didactics, current and historic discourses are negotiated so as to emphasise new aspects and develop perspectives which so far seemed limited by the framework of their negotiation. As a consequence, discussions on the situation of refugees living in Berlin, the destruction of family relationships owing to the continuity of colonial conditions, the power dynamics between Old Europe and New Africa obtain an unknown variety of fresh perspectives and possible interpretations.

Concert – Citizen X (Bourelly and Bey)

 
English Theatre Berlin
Fidicinstraße 40, 10965 Berlin

 

 

This newly formed duo appeals to the cinematic sense of music and the freedom to navigate beyond category. Inspired by the revolutionary 1960´s of Detroit, Chicago and Los Angeles, marinated over time, Citizen X finds a new voice in the theatre of today´s globalized one-world politics. The duets move through a landscape filled with a sense of spirituality, atmospheric sound bytes punctuated by wide ranging guitar sounds and observant commentary on today’s tumultuous world. Cadillac Eldorados, Sun Ra´s Arkestra and names like Amiri Baraka, Fred Hampton and Huey P. Newton come to mind in a blend of black-a-delic consciousness, bringing a sense of proximity to both danger, beauty and love.

Chantre du free jazz que l’on classe parmi les monuments, Archie Shepp a collaboré avec les plus grands : de John Coltrane à Frank Zappa, en passant par l’initiateur du free jazz, Cecil Taylor. Doté d’une virtuosité intemporelle, Archie Shepp est un artiste aux multiples casquettes : saxophoniste, chanteur, poète engagé, pianiste et également dramaturge.
