Taken Out of Con[Text]

A text experiment by Koleka Putuma

About the event

Koleka Putuma experiments (backspace) fidgets with extracts from her published works, No Easter Sunday for Queers; Hullo, Bu-bye, Koko, Come In; and Collective Amnesia. She invites musician Odwa Bongo to fiddle (backspace) play with their sonic archive; peeling and rearranging what comes up… or out (or both). Taken Out of Con[Text] assembles scraps of archives, hauntings funnelled through loose endings and fickle certainties. Language can be such an unreliable source. We are met with the fissures (backspace) intersections of documentation and performance. A sonic and text experiment. A chorus of sound and colour, washed in the blood of darlings killed and revived. You'll release it when you are ready. A performance reckoning with finished works in process. (backspace). The performers reckon with works in process. -------------- Text and Performance by Koleka Putuma Music by Odwa Bongo Food, drinks and merchandise will be available for sale at the venue.
