Blk.Banaana

Multi-disciplinary Performance artist and activist KooCha, is one of the participants of Ancestral Body Noise: Rituals of Real(see) – a six-week-long, intercultural healing incubator on biomythography and ancestral reconnection.

In a series of podcasts, we get to drive deeper into each of the participants‘ stories and their experience of the process. In the first episode, Dumama (@duma_ma) and Koocha go on an exploration of KooCha’s previous work. Which unpacks power, positionality, subconscious internalization and processing of palatability as we carry ancestral memory & create meaningful work as a queer femme artists of colour in Europe.

KooCha also takes us on a sonic research journey of sounds she grew up listening to, sounds that connect her to her grandma and sounds generated as part of the ABN workshop sessions.
