M(a)y Sister (2015 – 2018)


As the artistic director of the sequential performance series »(a) y Sister«, I have brought my book »Sisters & Souls« (Orlanda Verlag 2015) to the stage at HAU Hebbel am Ufer Theater Berlin. The musical and performative continuation of the anthology aims at (afro-)cultural education and networking. By telling their herstories on stage, Black German women in various forms of representation translate May Ayim’s commitment to the Black community and the women’s movement. In return afro-cultural identity is manifested in a public space which can be seen as a further step in the process of social and political decolonization.
