UNANTHEMIC is a decolonial memoir. Commissioned by Sonic Gaze for Newham Spoken Word Festival, UNANTHEMIC navigates personal and national identity and media through performance and forms of non-violent protest.
Collage, dance, sculpture, text and video speak to and translate the complexities, frustrations and joy found in race, cultural identity and multifaceted personhood. Pseudo-celebrity collaborators help dissect legacies of white supremacy, the ‘problematic’ and ‘woke’. UNANTHEMIC shuttles between personal and pirated pop-cultural identity subjectivities, pivoting through dynamic positions from which to move and be moved.
