Barby Asante og samarbeidspartnere Declaration of Independence   Sal V  Performance


Hva er uavhengighet og gjensidig avhengighet? Hvordan påvirker det politiske det personlige? Hvilken innvirkning har historiske erklæringer på livene våre? Hvordan eksisterer kvinners historier, og hvordan blir de synliggjort?


Performancen undersøkte ideer om uavhengighet og historiefortelling og inviterte oss til et et eget rom for kollektiv tenkning, ritualer og gjenskapning. Forestillingen brakte sammen women of colour og deres historier.
