Show 096: Long Walk (Abridged) by Claudia Wegener

Claudia Wegener asks passers-by in the city of Johannesburg to read sentences from Nelson Mandela’s biography ‘Long Walk to Freedom’ (the abridged edition!) but translated on the spot into their own mother tongue. With eleven official languages in South Africa alone, the outcome is a poly-lingual collage.
This show for radia was prepared as an ‘in vitro’ experiment for a taxi-choreographic acoustic spectacle, a chorus dance of Joburg’s ‘black taxis’ in Mandela Square (Sandton) and Freedom Square (Kliptown).
