Experitheater Zürich

PLANTATION #1 – nativeness

Our recent experiences of non-white artistic practices and their focus on a reality of non-fiction, have led us to engage with the history of the plantation. The physical-experimental work of non-white performers, who have to trace the past and re-inhabit the political territory of the plantation, allows us to find a connection between narratives in the archive of history and current realities of lifes in Switzerland.

Since ten years, Zurich is the home base of experi_theater. Here we live and initiate spaces for non-white artistic practices. We go out on the streets and confront the spaces of the white theatre and cultural institutions. We populate this city with our lives and artistic care work that advocates change. We were not born here. But we inhabit this city with de-colonial nativeness.

PLANTATION is a a long term investigatory experimental performance work.
