November 2018

FB_poster_2Sogokuru my new performative installation and part two of my series (Non) Humanism & Animism will get premiered early 2019 at CTM Festival in Berlin. Sogokuru literally means grandfather in Kinyarwanda and will be an ode to the incredible resilience and wisdom of my nearly 109 year old Rwandan grandfather: a HAPPY BIRTHDAY WISH, loud and proud, for everyone to be heard!

Sogokuru is the winning project of CTM Radiolab 2019, realised in the framework of “CTM 2019 – PERSISTENCE“, and is a co-production with CTM Festival and Deutschlandfunk Kultur. It is co-funded by Deutschlandfunk Kultur and ORF. With support of Musikprotokoll im Steirischen Herbst, Goethe Institut and The Wire Magazine. The first phase of this project was commissioned by Gaudeamus and supported by Fonds Podiumkunsten.
