Them and us – Jochen Roller & Yuki Kihara

25. September 8:00 am


The Samoans are back! A century after they were lucratively on display in German zoos, three of them, Malili, Lafaele and Paul – come to us, in a “folkolonial” spectacle, to study the customs of their white compatriots. Thereby, they experience strange ties: the people in Bavaria dance Fa’ataupati in lederhosen and in Berlin clubs one can see the tattoos of Samoan Chiefs. Between film and performance, the three dancers examine the German point of view of the former German-Samonan colony, with both pleasure and scorn at the same time.
