Òwe by Mufutau Yusuf
Òwe is inspired by meditations on Yoruba proverbs, proverbs which act as an archive of ancestral knowledge, intuitions, and values of Yoruba people. This solo performance seeks to decode a fragmented, personal archive and observe it through the scope of the more objective cultural and historical archives.
Yusuf uses personal and found archival material as concept, visual design, and soundscape, with an energetic blend of traditional and contemporary movements.
.. It is an emotional resurrection of a past that is both personal and ancestral.
