Weaving actual testimonies with documentation of the creation process, Ülfet Sevdi’s performance Numbers Increase As We Count… deals with the fate of women suffering the consequences of war in post-American occupied Iraq: displacement and forced sex-work. This counting refers to the number of victims: an endless performance if we were to continue the counting in an attempt to reach the actual numbers.

Performances from March 14-24

Yev is a hermit living in a remote region of the Northern Taiga, the sole survivor of a family who fled civilization for fear of religious persecution. Mathew, a biology student, curious about her solitary life, begins to transmit letters to her. As their relationship deepens, Mathew discovers that Yev is not entirely alone. Complications between Yev and her possessive neighbour, a retired geologist, reveal another version of her life story. Through complex storytelling and multiple perspectives, the play slowly unearths the truth of these secluded relationships.

Séancers

April 12 @ 8:00 pm
MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels), 3680, rue Jeanne-Mance, bureau 103
Montreal, QC H2X 2K5 Canada

Jaamil Olawale Kosoko sets the fugitive experience afforded Black people on fire with majesty, opulence, and agency. Engaging the spiritual, emotional, and theoretical he remixes American history with afro-futurist/afro-pessimist ideologies. In Séancers, Kosoko activates lyrical poetry and movement forms, working with sound artist Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste,and a guest Séancer. They examine the chameleon-like strategies for subverting the ways in which racialized bodies are structurally organized.

Presented at the MAI on April 12 as part of the Black.Art.Empowerment: I see, I speak, I am movement event series.

April 19 @ 8:00 pm
MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels), 3680, rue Jeanne-Mance, bureau 103
Montreal, QC H2X 2K5 Canada

Positioning herself as an anthropologist from the future, Kapwani Kiwanga’s live reading and video projection reflect on some major themes in Afrofuturism and their role in the development of the United States of Africa Space Agency. Plunging into the past to retrieve archives of popular culture, she uses science fiction to make projections about the future, examining the past from an African or African diasporic subjectivity.

Terrestrial

April 26 @ 7:00 pm
MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels), 3680, rue Jeanne-Mance, bureau 103
Montreal, QC H2X 2K5 Canada

jumatatu m. poe’s terrestrial reminds us that Black humans have a long, continuing terrestrial history that far precedes and will outlive the specific oppressions of the past five centuries of white supremacy. Inspired by the hot brown granules in desert dirt and beach sand, this is an examination of humans as earth. Performed with Samantha Speis and vocalist Rodrigo Jerônimo, it is an in-progress, three-hour performance installation that invites the audience to come and go throughout.

Presented at the MAI on April 26th.
