Simone Dede Ayivi & Kompliz*innen:
Due to the Christmas market in Sophienstraße, the Sophiensaele cannot be approached by car on December 17, 2023.
Who owns the city, who do we commemorate and where is there room for utopias? Rebellkarussell is a video trilogy by Simone Dede Ayivi and Kompliz*innen. In an installative setting for the video preview, we can watch the final episode of the series on Afrofuturism come to life. It brings pre-colonial culture and mythology into futuristic worlds and builds bridges for rebellious time travelers. Infotainment with the simplest analogue means of theater – because everything can be better illustrated when it fogs and hisses, something spins or comes from the ceiling.

Simone Dede Ayivi developed performances with her accomplices in cooperation with the Sophiensæle, the Künstlerhaus Mousonturm Frankfurt and the Festival Theaterformen. Among others, she directed at the Schauspielhaus Graz and the Theater Oberhausen. In 2022 she received the Tabori Award of the Fonds Darstellende Künste. Ayivi's performances discuss issues of representation, resistance, and community. Her works are curious, primarily interview-based research projects that bring search movements to the stage in a technically playful way, with an open use of theatrical means.
