Co-presented by 1-54 Contemporary African Art Fair, Gallery 1957 and MACAAL, Elisabeth Efua Sutherland’s performance, Black Noise, explores black as a lament, colour and meditation. Using sound, movement, and simple interactivity, Sutherland, together with eight fellow performers, incorporates components of contemporary, modern, and traditional Ghanaian dance, with song and spoken word in English and Twi, an Akan dialect.

The performance will be held in two locations across two days.
