SICK! Festival: Ogutu Muraya - Fractured Memory
Location: ACCA Auditorium
How can one deal with an inherited history that is full of complexity? Weaving together literary text, video and storytelling Ogutu Muraya reimagines the congress of Afro-intellectuals, writers, artists, philosophers and theorists, at the Sorbonne in Paris in 1956, described in James Baldwin’s essay Princes and Powers. Ogutu embraces a multiplicity of perspectives, historical archive materials and personal experience. Examining the legacy of the congress, the performance shifts perspectives, seeking a new vocabulary for dealing with uncomfortable truths.
‘…it is with great pain and terror that
one begins to assess the history
that has placed one where one is,
and formed one’s point of view.’
