Zinneke is a performative conference.
Zinneke means Bastard.
It’s an archive of gestures, poems and silenced voices.
In this piece I become my Mother, working with otherness in order to relate some of the stories and the silenced bodies.
So, Zinneke is also having a coffee with my Mother in her kitchen.
It’s being there in the warmth of the south, its fissures and its open spaces.
Zinneke is dancing with 70-year-old knees.
It’s moving to heal the wound, the story, her story.
Zinneke is my Mother making a noise.
