I Step on Air

Commissioned Work by Natasha Kelly (Germany/Jamaika) Dozent at The Humbold University Berlin and Initator of the May Ayim Seminar at the department of Gender studys.

takes the audience through May Ayim's historical engagement as a poet, writer, activist and academic in Germany and her experience as a Black German woman tracing her roots to Ghana. The encounter of circular storytelling, grounded in West African narrative traditions, innovative body language, and atmospheric music results in an entertaining and meditative show, praised by American poet Sadiq Bey as »outstanding avant-garde«.

Poem from May Ayim
