Hullo, Bu-Bye, Koko, Come In

December 9, 2021 @ 8:00 am - December 10, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

R200

With her latest work Hullo, Bu-Bye, Koko, Come In, the poet reacts to success and reflects on her position as a Black artist in White institutions, asking: ‘Why are you always hijacking our narratives with your gaze?’ With their powerful language, her texts examine the precarious proximity of hyper-visibility and disappearance, being swallowed up when one’s voice is hijacked and bought: ‘Europe asks if it can touch my hair / backspace / Europe touches my hair’.

Weaving together sound, visual design and projection mapping, Putuma creates a multimedia performance of her new poems for the stage, radically questioning the points of view between audience and performers.
