Echoes of Fraternity
“Echoes of Fraternity” was a workshop that questions the notion of fraternity by bringing to the forefront its relevance and topicality in our interconnected world.
In this workshop participants of all generations were able to explore various dimensions of brotherhood linkage and sense of connectedness in our digital and better-informed societies.
The workshop utilised videos, music and dance to produce a dynamic and joyful atmosphere, while at the same time addressing some sensitive issues. Challenging feelings such as love and hatred, envy and desire, anger and laughter, violence and tenderness, “Echoes of Fraternity” resonates in political terms with identity, gender, community, nationality and racism issues. The work done during this session was powerful and emotional.
This event took place live at the festival and was not documented for the the ArchLive.
