During the performance “Everything Is Connected” six young performers will interact with ‚looted objects' that are sleeping in museums for more than 100 years. The performers have chosen different Yoruba masks, with which (or with whom) they interact through music, dance, poetry.
„We have learned from the Yoruba believe system that everything has a natural asé - a life energy and that's why on earth everything is connected. Through art we will try to connect to the masks and their inner self – as a form of decolonization of them and us. By taking the pieces out of the boxes and shelfs, blowing away the dust, we will give respect to the old energies and ancient cosmic systems. We also worked on animal movements, the way animals behave and communicate. They behave and move naturally in their environment, what humans have lost with the time. The transformation from animal to human or mask to human – all the in-between states between different energies is something we have been working with.“
