Moving Still: How Do Go From Here is the culmination of a 6-week devised theatre workshop intervention into the Colonial Neighbours archive. The final performance was shown to the audience at October, 15 2016 atSavvy Contemporary. The project was conceived and lead by Tito Aderemi-Ibitola, a Lagos-based multimedia artist working primarily in performance and video. Her work focuses on the intersections of race, gender, and ethnicity. She is currently artist-in-residence at Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik (ZK/U) Berlin, Galerie Wedding andSavvy Contemporary. The workshops used physical movement exercises, experimental play, text examination, and community excursions as a means of delving deeper into Germany’s colonial history. The items of the archive serve as an impetus for consideration and play. Overlaying video, music, and movement, this theatrical presentation creates multifaceted points of entry into the archive and clears space for new forms of thinking about Germany’s colonial past. It is a representation of the deliberations and concerns of those who participated in the workshops. Though it is the final project for this series of workshops, the project is designed to be built upon and extend into new forms.
