Healing as Cliché Breaking - Throwback

Performance / Talk / Celebration
Clišhé Träsh Warm-up 29.07.2023

by Ayrson Heráclito, Gina Disobey & Black Community Innsbruck - curated by Ivana Marjanovic

Our heartfelt thanks to all who participated in the performance 'HEALING AS CLICHÉ BREAKING' and turned out in large numbers despite the unsettled weather! By using ritual traditions and healing practices in terms of political tools, Ayrson Heráclito and Gina Disobey critically addressed issues of colonialism and racism and their continuity. The collective performance addressed practices of performance rituality, the activation of community public space, and its regulation shaped by racist and discriminatory stereotyping.

The performance was a warm-up event for the festival CLIŠHÉ TRÄSH (on October 6 and 7 in Vienna) and was curated by Ivana Marjanović (Forum member).

In cooperation with Kunstraum Innsbruck and Gina Disobey/leader of the project #wegonnabreathe of the Black Community Innsbruck. Sponsored by the Austrian Development Agency, the City of Vienna, the Federal Minister of Arts, Culture, Public Service and Sport and supported by Vienna Airport and Erste Bank.
