As a guest of this virtual tour, you are welcome to explore our affective cartography of the city, woven between a lost and a regained sense of orientation: from a narrative of childhood memories of war in Bosnia in a Frankfurt doll clinic to the conjuring of Buenos Aires through opera singing in the streets of Bornheim, from redoing, at Frankfurt’s main cemetery, the steps walked many times in different latitudes to soundscapes that speak of lost, failed or awaited photographs from family archives.
Daydreaming the Archive is a performative and audio walking tour guided by post_migrants from different professional and geographic backgrounds that initially took place in Frankfurt am Main from 15 to 17 October 2021. Here, you can find the audio tracks as well as documentation from the live performance. Feel free to wander through the archives of the archives.
Initiated and choreographed by a group of post migrant artists: Olga Popova, Felipe dos Santos, Bárbara Galego, and Diana De Fex. Alternately taking on the roles of facilitators, choreographers, and pedagogues they collaborate with six other post_migrants among which there are two opera singers, an amateur photographer and gardener, an NGO worker, a mother and event manager, and a plastic bottle recycler: Sol Crespo and Walter Castillo, Debo Seabra, Khabeer Singh, Dajana Kubat, and Bergie (said ber-hy). With the dramaturgical support of Alice Nogueira during the research phase and Maria Tsitroudi during the production phase.
