For three days contemporary artists from Uganda, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and the Netherlands meet on stage at De Balie for the 18thedition of Afrovibes festival. With dance, spoken word, conversations and music.
From Afro cosmic to poetry slam. This night host Jennifer Muntslag explores the relationship between (black) subcultures and the mainstream with a.o. dancer Faizal Ddamba Mostrixx, one of the most inspiring talents in the Ugandan electronic music scene. When is a subculture becoming mainstream and what does it change? Is the appropriation of subcultures by mainstream media, big music channels and celebrities a good or a bad thing?
With spoken word by Ivan Words.
This night of Afrovibes is a twofold:
– Talkshow: subculture becoming mainstream
– Performance: symphony of 21
