Bianca White is back in whiter shades of pale.
BLACK NOTICE is a performance where South African artist Ntando
Cele plays her white alter ego “Bianca White”, while using black and white
photographs of young black women from 1900s, gestures and song to exaggerate
exoticism to a point where it loses its romantic notions. Combining comedy and
live music, the piece aggressively creates superficial black and white
experiences and stereotypes until they become painfully ridiculous.
Collaborating with Raphael Urweider, Henning Luther on drums and Patrick Apt
(BiggerClub) on guitar; they create a burlesque atmosphere with such grotesque
absurdity that laughter gets stuck in the throat.
The performance plays on the notions of the
black performer: fool, minstrel, vaudeville, black face, freak show; proposing
whether we have evolved past notions of prejudice in 2014
