Dans le cadre de La Manutention - Performeurs en résidence
“Here, our rebellions will be the songs that bring us tomorrow. Our bodies, droplets, will seep into linear history and shift it from its course.”
In Aquatic Invasion, Josèfa Ntjam deploys mythological, political and artistic elements associated with water and its cult.
The figures evoked – from the goddess Mami Wata to techno music duo Drecxiya, from the “boatless” of Ancient Egypt to the water spirits of Central Africa – will emerge from the depths to stir their fictions. The artist and her guests will reinvent these tales of the deep, recombining them in a way that speaks to today, through poetry, sound, dance and image.
Aquatic Invasion becomes, then, a rising tide borne forward by the energy of words and bodies, an apocalyptic flood coursing over the surface of our worlds, the darkness risen from the deep.
