‘We lay on the ground pressed by the weight of our history wondering why we can’t breathe. ‘The scorn of the earth’ we have been called… We have always been here and we will not be leaving anytime soon. The melanin that we have denotes the story that we have carved.’
The performance goes deep into a multitude of themes, posing questions about spirituality and displacement and the three-unity – an exploration of the non-linearity of time. Coloured Swans 3: Harriet’s reMix is firmly set on the crossroads between West Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa.
The performance also questions form and theatre. Why do we choose to put our bodies in a black box? How can the three bodies become one, and thus, a solo? How do projections put on some bodies impact their performativity? The entire piece is set in a space with continuously changing borders, allowing the performers to use the space in any way they want. Expect another lush tapestry of images, sound and movement, put together by the same artistic team that helped Moya create her first two deeply riveting Swans.
