Ashanti Harris, LES BALLETS NEGRES: A CONTIGUOUS ARCHIVE, 2018

Ashanti will lead and facilitate a movement workshop with knowbotiq’s undefined raffia object for the project thulu thu thu, before the sun harms you. The movements will develop in response to the material limitations of the object, a series of recorded incantations and the complex and multiple histories and properties of the Sutherland landscape.
