Daytime Programme with Panel on Iran, Lecture by Noah Sow and Discussion on Activisim on the Dancefloor

After their performances last night, Iranian experimental musicians Sote, Siavash Amini and 9T Antiope speak about the scene and music in Teheran. Ayesha Hameed looks at possible afterlives of the Black Atlantic: in contemporary illegalised migration at sea, in oceanic environments, through Afrofuturistic dancefloors and soundsystems, and in outer space. Noah Sow speaks about the conception and production of the gender-bending satire play "Radio Meta“, which aims at the deconstruction of sexism, racism and bias in the field of pop music and radio. The day is rounded out with a panel on perceptions of the dancefloor, from uptopic neutral space to political realm as it aims to unpack how strategies of resistance and perhaps vested political action can be realised.
