Souls` Landscapes is a three-part performance produced by Uriel Barthelemi in collaboration with Entissar Al Hamdany, Joel Lokossou, Rigo 23, and Fabrice Taraud. It is loosely inspired by Frantz Fanon`s 1961 book The Wretched of the Earth and incorporates music, dance, shadow, and text, developed using a personal and improvisational approach by the artists involved in the project.
The artists performed parts I and II of the triptych during the opening week of Sharjah Biennial 12. They performed Souls’ Landscapes: Violence, magical superstructures & invisible guardians at the Mirage City Cinema, and Souls’ Landscapes: The great mantle of night which has enveloped us… at an unused warehouse at Port Khalid.
This video shows highlights from the two performances.
