“This is how i started my oddyssee to embrace blackness.”
Water, l’atterrée des eaux vives explores the underlying friction of our perception of the racialised female body. Crossing a continuum of figures linked to representations of black history and her own imaginings of the black bodies, the body of Water is a dangling, lost object, suspended between ‘how to be perceived’ and ‘how to express oneself’.
Navigating the limbo of dual belonging, this performative poem comments on the racial experience of self. It is through a choreography of fragments and destructuring that Waterexposes the violently fragile nature of the body made up of bone, of flesh and words.
“Yalombo takes the audience along in her stream of thoughts on her multifaceted identity with a good portion of spellbinding and Dadaist expression” Ayla, B-scene(rs)
“What happens on stage says a lot, but the little things beside it are also worth looking at.” Stefanie, B-scene(rs)
The performance is programmed by BUDA’s B-scene(rs) in the frame of Be SpectACTive, a EU program that aims to foster the power of the audience.
