In Performance: Moved by the Motion (Wu Tsang & boychild), Sudden Rise (The Present is Not Enough)

Sudden RiseMoved by the Motion (Wu Tsang & boychild)The Present is Not Enough, HAU1June 28-29 On the curtain of HAU’s proscenium theatre flashes a western archive. Images from a Euro-centric art historical past and present. In the first 30 seconds, we travel over a thousand years in time and find ourselves back in Germany, where Wu Tsang enters the stage to the melodic sounds of Patrick Belago playing the cello. The performance text, which was co-written by and with Fred Moten is spoken with a soft authority. The words are dense but seductive. The type of language that makes you reposition your body to hear more clearly. Visually, Sudden Rise fractures perspectives and casts the theatre into the mirage of shadows. Dark materiality is collaged through time on stage, and the result creat...

In Performance: Mamela Nyamza, Black Privilege (The Present is Not Enough)

Black PrivilegeMamela Nyamza The Present is Not Enough, HAU2June 25-26 From a black void emerges the glimpse of a goddess.  Mamela Nyamza, appears perched on top of a bronze wheeled-staircase. Her own bronzed body in the warm light reflects the gold jewelry that adorns her head, ears, wrists and ankles. A second performer, Sello Pesa, catches the eye only a few seconds later when his cumbersome red and black magisterial robes bunch together as he physically pushes Nyanza’s mobile pedestal.   Black Privilege embodies the dark irony of the title’s contradiction. A saturation of iconographic sonography contrasts Nyanza’s subdued choreography. The resulting performance seduces a gaze only to return the bright bite of a hot sun. We squint while bearing witness to her tragic fall from grace...

In Performance: Burgerz

BurgerzTravis Alabanza HAU Hebbel am Ufer, BerlinJune 28-30, 2019 In 2016, someone threw a burger at Travis Alabanza. The act occurred in public, and in broad daylight; the burger was accompanied by a transphobic slur. In Alabanza’s not-quite-solo performance Burgerz —presented as part of HAU’s festival “The Present is Not Enough: Performing Queer Histories and Futures” — this traumatic event becomes a catalyst for performer and audience to jointly face the violence and aggression to which trans bodies are increasingly subjected in public, and the complicity of the rest of us who (literally and figuratively) stand by and let that violence occur. Burgerz is an urgent response to an urgent situation, a clear and impassioned call for responsibility and recognition. After the assault, Ala...
