Exploring alternative realities

In the premiere of ‘Akomfrahdio’, performer Mathieu Charles goes on a solo voyage through a post-apocalyptic alternative reality. Along the way he explores non-linear time, technological innovation, history and non-Western knowledge production. For ‘Akomfrahdio’ Charles draws on archives of so-called pasts, presents and futures. 

The portmanteau title reconciles the name John Akomfrah – the artist behind the acclaimed ‘The Last Angel of History’ and the founder of Black Audio Film Collective – with the concept of radio frequencies.

“Een stervende wereld wil nog even de sterren aanraken. Ze hebben gefaald. Ze hebben grandioos gefaald. Zij die enkel knoppen konden indrukken en trekkers overhalen. Nu zijn er enkel nog paddenstoelwolken.”
