Tiny OyoUnity @ ufaFabrik | Pop-Up Event: Ojudun Taiwo – EXIT Strategies
3. September 13:00 - 18:00
Tiny Oyounity presents:
'EXIT Strategies: Unraveling Environmental Crises and Pursuing Climate Justice in the Global South' - a multimedia theatre performance facilitated by Ojudun Taiwo
From late August to mid-October, our Tiny House travels through Berlin districts, engaging interactively with the local community and partners at cultural venues and institutions. Through a diverse range of workshops, the aim is to connect decolonial knowledge and artistic practices with marketing, design, and knowledge dissemination.
First Stop: @ ufaFabrik (Viktoriastraße 10-18, 12105 Berlin)
The "EXIT Strategies" project is a multimedia total theatre performance aimed at shedding light on the intricate issues surrounding environmental crises and ecological degradation, particularly in the global south. The project delves into the deep-seated origins of these challenges, investigating their links to historical colonialism, socio-economic class disparities, and the exploitative nature of the capitalist economic model. Through an extensive research-driven approach, the project aims to provide insights into pivotal questions concerning alternative systems, the far-reaching consequences of climate change, and the notion of climate justice within the global south. It strives to scrutinize the lasting effects of climate change on the region while advocating for sustainable and equitable solutions.
Tickets: Free admission
Location: ufaFabrik - Internationales Kultur Zentrum
Viktoriastraße 10-18, 12105 Berlin

Ojudun Taiwo is a dancer, choreographer, curator and performance artist based in Lagos and Berlin. In 2015, Taiwo co-founded Illuminatetheatre productions with whom Taiwo works presently as Artistic Director. Illuminatetheatre productions is a multidisciplinary creative lab where a collection of young people collaborate to create experimental artistic projects with and for its community. Taiwo also serves as curator and artistic Director of Art Mobile Lagos, Nigeria. Taiwo ́s multidisciplinary performances reflect sociopolitical topics on subjects of climate change, environmental racism, and postcolonial identity. Taiwo admires the relationship between the blend of the old tradition and the development of the contemporary. Coming from a rich culture where masquerades were the only form of resistance to a ruling monarch (King) policies, Taiwo seeks to recuperate precolonial African practices through various means, often relying on performance as a way of accessing what was lost or stolen. Taiwo ́s art blends experimental dance theater practice with socio-political consciousness for different kinds of public spaces and most often with materials discarded or overlooked as trash or cultural waste. Taiwo’s curiosity about how people connect and reflect on the world pushes Taiwo to continue exploring a tug between essentialism and existentialism.
The project Tiny OyoUnity is part of the initiative DRAUSSENSTADT funded by the Berliner Projektfonds Urbane Praxis and the Senatsverwaltung für Kultur und Gesellschaftlichen Zusammenhalt.
