Artivism on the High Seas:
Grey Filastine & Nova Ruth share the Voyage of Arka Kinari
+ live documentary performance by Nova & Grey
(java neo soul & outernational percussion)
In a live documentary performance combining video, music and story, Nova Ruth & Grey Filastine share the voyage of Arka Kinari. Subversive, immersive and partially submerged, Arka Kinari is a 70-ton sailing ship transformed into a cultural platform to sound the alarm for the climate crisis. Filastine & Nova are a multimedia duo working to undermine borders. Their music collides psychedelic trap beats with Javanese post-folk, musique concréte, analogue synths and acoustic instruments.
“Meet the creatives taking to the ocean to spread a message about the climate crisis” – NatGeo
“They sound less like ‘world’ music and more like music from another world” – Pitchfork
+ talk: Panel with Grey and Nova + members of Geheimagentur & Women of the Seven Seas.
After the panel discussion there will be space for questions from the audience

Find out what happens when a rogue’s gallery of activists, makers and artists embark on a terrible idea for the best of reasons. Everything you imagined about the wildness of the sea will be confirmed... and then some. International borders will be proven fictions, until they suddenly become the hardest of facts when the pandemic traps Arka Kinari stateless at sea for months with a broken engine and shrinking supplies. Along the way you’ll find out what happens behind the fences of seedy ports from Morocco to Mexico, be hosted by Venezuelan soldiers on a barren rock, perform for indigenous communities on Panama’s disappearing islands, witness America’s bizarre nuclear legacy in the Pacific atolls, negotiate provisioning with heads of state, meet the Micronesian navigators preserving their ancient craft, be bashed by storms, scavenge supplies from shipwrecks, and be saved by a passing supertanker. You’ll also hear the challenges of being one of the few performing arts productions actually touring during the Covid crisis as the ship tours the Indonesian archipelago with help from such diverse quarters as government ministers, Islamic scholars, quarantine teams in haz-mat suits, and transgender shamans.
