Afrogalactica : Un abrégé du futur
Kapwani Kiwanga

Past: Thursday, July 9, 2015 at 7 PM

In this performance, the first part of her Afrogalactica trilogy, Kapwani Kiwanga poses as an anthropologist from the future. Kiwanga reflects on some major themes taken from her research on Afrofuturism and its role in the development of the yet-to-be-created United States of Africa Space Agency. Plunging into the past to retrieve archives of popular culture, she uses science fiction to make projections about the future.
