The Supreme Exodus Performance - The Crown of Joy: From Masquerades to Cultural Resistance.

In collaboration with Groninger Museum, Curator Suean van der Zijpp (Groninger Museum), Minerva Art Academy and the Prince Claus Conservatorium (Hanze University of Applied Sciences).

The performance is based on DNA ancestral studies and on an analysis of Sylvia Wynter’s 1973 Maskarade: A Jonkunnu Musical Play. Maskarade belongs to the earlier theoretical works of Wynter’s. The performance research on issues of postcolonial history, migration, cultural appropriation, Yoruba culture, Afro Latin-American identity and political transcultural theoretical praxes.

Sylvia Wynter: The Jamaican writer and cultural theorist is best known for her diverse writings that pull together insights from theories in history, literature, science, and black studies, to explore race, the legacy of colonialism, and representations of humanness.

The spirit of performance, play, and collaboration remained central to Dada, even as the movement spread outward from Cabaret Voltaire to other nations and continents. Dadaists believed that the value of art lay not in the work produced, but in the act of making and collaborating with others to create new visions of the world.

This project was made possible by the generous support of the Mondriaan Fund and Stichting Beringer Hazewinkel.
