Neferet iti (Nofretete)



Neferet iti (Nofretete)

Duration: 36 min

In this dance creation, Oxana embodies the famous Pharaoh Neferet iti. Praised in Berlin, Germany, as the "beautiful migrant in town", she is also one of the oldest African women in Germany. Lingering in Berlin's museum island since more then 100 years, she never got the opportunity to travel back to her home country. A poetic, contemporary dance-herstory-performance, which hints at the fact that Europe is gaining a big financial and cultural profit from art works from other continents... while the native countries and artists remain unacknowledged. This mind-blowing emotional Fusion dance is performed with live percussions, e-guitar and Oud music.

»A somewhat delicate presence, she is, nevertheless, a woman writ large, claiming concert dance space for a diverse and teeming world, blessing that space.«
Eva Yaa Asantewaa, Bessie Award winner for Outstanding Service to the Field of Dance, writer, curator
during Festival Dapline! The Performance Project @ University Settlement – New York

»A vital and wonderful production which deals with history in a powerful and playful way«
Wendy Sutherland, Associate Professor of German Language & Literature, Florida
after the Premiere at Berlin Dance(a)Summer 12 Festival in Berlin

»A healing dance therapy!«
Madame Michalon, Dance teacher, after the performance at Maison des Arts, Martinique
