Performative Archiving / Women* in German Colonial History in Namibia

Research and performance between Windhoek, Berlin, Hamburg and Brussels
by and with Ewe Benbenek, Nesindano Namise, Meera Theunert, Anna Kuch

2021 scholarship flausen + residency Theaterwerkstatt Pilkentafel

The project explores strategies of performative archiving in the context of the history of German colonialism in Namibia. Performative archiving means that the process of archiving can only take place critically if there is interaction between people and the archived objects. The core of the project is to develop ways of performative archiving in the context of interrogating alternative narratives, especially those of women of German colonial history in Namibia. In doing so, we also assume an expanded notion of object that includes the material and immaterial realms. Sound, oral narratives, mentalities, and movements are considered objects, to name a few.

Meera Theunert

A customer's journey

Sorry, Baby! I really didn't want to pull the wool over your eyes, but somehow someone has stirred the domination principle into my cereal again. I can't think of anything else: work for love, love for money, money for war. Business as usual. But believe me, nothing compares to you. You are still the best match. If someone would put me in front of the choice: Domination, wisdom or love, I would always choose love.

During the 30 seconds I was in front of you, you made a judgment call on me.
Even if you don't know me, you think you know who I am. You've decided to listen to me or not. You have decided the importance of what I am going to say, before I said it. You decided on how intelligent my words will be, before I pronounced them. You classify me on the shelves of your point of view. I have a place in your world. I don't care where that place is. It's a place that has more to do with you than with me.
But if you truly let me enter that space, that place, that box, that you prepared for me in the 30 seconds I stood in front of you, it would be untenable. It would be unbearable. I'll blow it up with a loud bang. The confusion would be limitless. Chaos.

Her Nature
by Tereza Slavkovská


The performance consists of a combination of fragments of true stories related to moments of change in the lives of different women. It is an exploration of the soul of women, their bodies and their voices.

When I grow up...
...I will protect my children like a wildcat. ...I will retrace the experiences of my ancestors. ...I will have a motorcycle. ...I will not care about people's expectations. I will be a warrior who fights for herself....

Dancer: Tereza Slavkovská, Anna Kuch, Jazmina Piktorova, Anna Conková
