Bamako 2011: –Brent Meistre

This work creates the history of the arrival of a stranger in a land where he has come to find himself and his love. He brings with him knowledge which is on one level enlightening but also burdening – a disability. The work subtly negotiates themes around xenophobia, with contrasting imagery from Greece (the Greek word xeni means foreigner) and that of imagery from sites traversed by the Dorsland Trekkers across Southern Africa. The soundtrack is adapted from the traditional Swahili love song Malaika, long regarded as an unofficial pan-African anthem by Harry Belafonte and Miriam Makeba.
