FILM ON PRODUCTION NOW!
I am an Ethiopian-German Female Artist who lives in Toronto and Berlin. I am an actress and filmmaker. I am interested in creating a safe space, empower females and minority narratives, since they haven’t been voiced enough.
IS CHANGING THE GAME
"Die Pflegionärin" online: ardmediathek - nominated for the 20th German Hearing Film Award
#Yell It From The Mountain is a show featuring Black artists of the performing arts. Since the death of George Floyd and the revival of the BLACK LIVES MATTER movement, the discussion about racism and structural racism has globally been reignited. As much as these discussions are necessary as artists we need to have a safe space where we can talk freely about our art without having to explain world order issues that continuously allow for our oppression.
Diasporakidz is a collective of eight performing artists from all over Canada who came together digitally to create a new piece with the working title "No one knows yet" With the support of the MAI and grounded in Diane Roberts Arrivals Legacy Project the all female-identifying collective has created an environment for the voices and the stories of their ancestors to not only emerge from them but also mingle with each other. Through these stories a new piece linking their past, present and future will be created. While doing so Diasporakidz will be implementing and testing out real and practical ways of decolonizing not only ideas of performance, from the rehearsal hall to the stage, but most importantly of themselves.
