  • 19:00 - 20:30 Concert: OY
  • 21:00 - 23:00 Film "This Is Not A Burial, it's a Resurrection" (Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese)
OY: ”Starting out as a fun experiment by Swiss-Ghanaian singer-songwriter Joy Frempong, OY is now a duo combining identity politics and transnational issues with an affinity for electronica, hip-hop, jazz, indie and film music. Along with drummer and composer Lleluja-Ha. Berlin-based duo OY are back with new songs from another world. While their previous album's cheerful electro-sample sound was most likely to be located in the melting pots of African metropolises, OY now beam their new tracks far into the future. Surrounded by catchy avant-garde electronica based on a core of vocal loops and pulsing beats, we find ourselves dancing to the story of a carefree future on planet "Space Diaspora" where humanity is finally developing the ability to learn from their mistakes. On this second joint album OY humorously reflect on topics such as transhumanism, diaspora and transculturation - and it is said that the force of the duo is particularly evident when brought back to stage.

Film: This Is Not A Burial, It’s A Resurrection by Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese

Sesetho w/ Englische Untertiteln - Deutsch Übersetzung

Amongst the pythonic mountains of landlocked Lesotho, an 80 year old widow winds up her earthly affairs, makes arrangements for her burial and prepares to die. But when her village is threatened with forced resettlement due to the construction of a reservoir, she finds a new will to live and ignites a collective spirit of defiance within her community. In the final dramatic moments of her life, Mantoa’s legend is forged and made eternal.
