Presented as part of the live programme for the Secret Surface. Where Meaning Materializes group exhibition, running February 13 to May 1, the performance will present “one twerk for every death” of the black population in the US where 1,134 people died in 2015.
“CLAPBACK is about the power of black asses to shed our post-colonial oppressions, transcend the expectation of dying young, shift the earth’s gravitational field and jettison evil trolls,” states the KW pres release.
Working across dance performance, sculpture and educational forums “as ways to consider political issues of race and gender”, the event will feature the institution “as a white, blank surface, which he aims to mark by means of his choreographic action, moving across – and against – his audience.”
