Incorporating music, spoken word and large-scale video projection, the performance reflects on how the politics of race affect relationships in an age of technology and globalisation. Gathering around a makeshift shelter, immerse yourself in a dystopian alternate reality, as lines are blurred between performers and the audience.
The Finding Fanon project is inspired by the lost plays of Frantz Fanon (1925–1961), a radical humanist whose work explored the mental distress caused by colonisation and the social and cultural consequences of decolonisation. Achiampong and Blandy negotiate Fanon’s ideas, examining how the politics of race, racism and societal issues affect our relationships in an age of new technology, pop culture and globalisation.
