AURUM is a collaboration between Manthe Ribane, Inka Kendzia and Faith XLVII.A multi-disciplinary project coalescing videography, projection mapping and dance into a live immersive installation.
The layered piece weaves together various narratives with overarching themes including immigration, borders, protest, government oppression and the strength of the human spirit to overcome these challenges. The symbolic use of the flag further explores notions of patriotism / nationalism / surrender / compliance / negotiation and ultimately peace.
The inaugural performance took place in Berlin during the opening of the Urban Nation Museum.
