digiTales – performance

After the first edition last year about the power of tales in the process of reconciliation, DigiTales Across Borders was back again to address the role of tales, therefore, oral culture for the transmission of knowledge through generations in the Great Lakes Region. Generally, tales are vehicle of identities and culture heritage.

Milena Kipfmüller and Klaus Janek, two Berlin based artists working on sounds/recordings together with storytellers from the Great Lakes Region presented 1 week of work between tradition and modernism of storytelling, along with an hybrid live performance.

The final performance was executed by Augustin Gasake, Gran Pere, Muheto Jean Bosco, Huguette, Lion King, Deo Munyakazi and sounding situations. It took place at Impact Hub Kigali on april 27th. In addition to the performance sounding situations (Milena Kipfmüller/Klaus Janek) lectured about listening and recording at RAI Rwandan Arts Initiative on may 29th and 30th. The performances was funded by Goethe-Institut Kigali, Institut Francais, and supported by RAI Rwandan Arts Initiative.
