Aurora Negra / Schwarze Morgenröte. Theaterstück von Aurora Negra

In the organizer's words:

How are black people represented in a theater landscape that is still predominantly white? "Aurora Negra" ("Black Dawn") tells of life as a black female artist in Europe, of migration and racism, but also of stereotypes, attributions and projections. The play is an attempt to break through the structural invisibility of black people in the performing arts. Cleo Diára, Isabél Zuaa and Nádia Yracema are graduates of the ESTC theater and film school in Lisbon and work internationally for theater, dance and cinema productions. The Portuguese artists have roots in Cape Verde, Angola and Guinea-Bissau. They founded their collective "Aurora Negra" to develop plays in which they can assert themselves as the protagonists of their own story. In their first production of the same name, they explore their identity, tell autobiographical stories, revive ceremonies and rituals, dance and sing. Self-confident, combative and very humorous, they determine what is told and how. - "A brilliant evening that has nothing didactic about it, no heaviness despite the thick planks it drills." (Georg Kasch, nachtkritik)
