The project led by Prof. Karmenlara Ely, concretely investigate concepts for new methods of performative historiography in scenography and performance practices, through archival materials, traces and mythopoetic facts emerging from Nordic involvement in the Trans Atlantic slave trade. The project is concentrated around 3 workshops that will take place in 3 different locations; here in Norway, in Copenhagen and in Trinidad and Tobago.
Several researchers are invited to participate to the project to gather, collect , explore and further investigate both primary archival materials , normative notions of presence and absence, representation, ideas of permanence and formal aspects of memorial making. The meetings will not only be discursive but engage in sharing sensory practices and methods for artistic research.
