THE WRITE EXPERIENCE III [TROTRO TELEPORT THEORY] maps shared histories of language, spirituality and creative cultures in West Africa. The festival takes us on a mobile(traveling) artists residency from Accra through Aflao to Lome. Artists from several parts of West Africa will connect to work on an experimental video that fuses folk storytelling poetry, music and vodou dance .
The project culminates in a concert on the 25th of January at Alliance Française Accra (Amphitheatre) where we show the experimental video and stage live performances of folk poetry, a dance installation, contemporary jazz and “porpor” or trotro music by Nii Noi Nortey and the Accra Trane Station band from 1968 La Drivers Union Porpor music group.
