post-colonial skype-performance: news from heidi-land/ radio doenergy

by Deniz Soezen

This performance using digital technology and internet (skype) is exploring various aspects of Swiss involvement in colonial history and the current discourse about cultural difference in Switzerland. I impersonate various figures of Swiss popular culture and colonial history by wearing masks: Heidi, the folk singer Mani Matter, the comedian Victor Giaccobo, African sculptures of public collections in Zurich and Basel and last but not least Alpine carneval masks. Video-interviews with „indigenous“ Swiss, one of them of Indian origin, links to youtube clips or the sharing of image and audio material are integral parts of the performance.
