EN MUSLIMSK AFRO

JOIK PÅ SVENSK I NORGE

Overview

“With waffles, bomb suits, shamanist self-irony, and meta-discourse about everything from skin color to collective voluntary work, [the ensemble] explore belonging, alienation, shame, and prejudice with an energy that switches between humor, solemnity, and a merciless critique of Norwegian collective indifference.”
For an hour and a half, four minority grotesques trample around the circus ring of an up-chucked Norwegian flag. This is a friction-filled performance about the communities we create and who gets to be a part of them. Belonging and exclusion go hand in hand and the actors move with and towards each other, with and towards the audience and with and towards themselves continually, confused and trying to grasp the phenomenon of racism and its mechanisms. Confused and searching, not of who we are, but of what we are. Because ‘we’ are the Norwegian Muslim, the African, the Sami and the Swede.
