The 35th International Festival Berlin "Tanz im August" presents two productions of the program at Villa Elisabeth!

How can we bring something to life if it is no longer there? Munyaneza creates a space for remembrance to resonate. She dances and sings on behalf of all those whose existence was denied by the colonial system. The work celebrates unheard, untold stories and lives, Elsa Dorlin's Guyanese great great grandmother, or Tituba, a Caribbean woman persecuted in the Salem witch trials. The music is by oud player and electronic music producer Khyam Allami. A living archive emerges in the interplay of sound, movement, light and shadow, revealing and sharing repressed knowledge.
