          Flinn Works + Asedeva Maji Maji Flava

          Performance

          2016 October 13 14 15 | 19.00
          Festsaal

          Englisch, Kisuaheli + Deutsch

          Trigger Warning

          This performance contains historical texts from the colonial era fromWissmann, Carl Peters and Graf von Götzen which are racist (e.g. the N-word is used).


          Maji Maji Flava is a collaboration between Flinn Works (Kassel/Berlin) and Asedeva (Dar es Salaam) which takes the MAJI MAJI WAR (1905 – 1907) of Tanzanian resistance against German colonial rule as its point of departure. From this shared historical event – that is perceived completely different in the two countries – the team will start an exploration of different themes: What are the perspectives on the Maji Maji War today? How can we represent this war that is at the same time myth, legend, taboo and historical event? How can we integrate different perspectives into one performance? How can we create a co-production that speaks to both Tanzanian and German audiences?

          The artists and performers creating this work have radically different artistic, cultural and geopolitical perspectives. These perspectives will not be glossed over but rather sharpened into focus, driving the artistic process. Instead of seeking compromise, the project invites this clash of juxtaposing contemporary viewpoints on a shared historical event and its effects on today. Exoticism will be deconstructed, cultural stereotypes and opposing perspectives will be examined and performatively articulated. Maji Maji Flava will create an imaginative and generative artistic space in which language slips between German, Swahili and English, abstract theatre clashes with driving rhythms, magic confounds science, and contemporary dance co-exists with satire.
