For ten days we researched and testet ideas in the forest, the dying spruce mono cultures being the most unexpected stage. The sight of a forest fire south of Berlin 'Pyrophob', is an urgent lab for the future. What looks like disaster sight can so quickly turn into a sight of hope when a biologist tells you that she counted 167 species of plants growing back after three years. Playing muisc for tree cutters and the dying trees created momentary magic. The position of art in climate crisis is yet to be examined more closely. But the days of 'art for arts sake' are definetely over. Thank you for your time and sharing your expertise. Thank you for the amazing . A true gift.

Congratulations! 🥳 Flinn Works erhält 2023 nach einer Auswahlentscheidung der Mitgliedschaft des ITI den Preis des Internationalen Theaterinstituts – Zentrum Deutschland.

Hier findet ihr unseren Podcast zur Produktion "Feminism from Rwanda" mit FlinnWorks: https://bit.ly/podcast-flinnworks
Flinn Works receives the ITI Germany Prize 2023. 🏆

Since 2009, Flinn Works has been producing documentary theatre in close collaboration with non-European partners, addressing the pressing issues of a globalised world. With in-depth research and the necessary awareness, they create plays at the interface of ethnology, music and documentary theatre that deal with questions of power and responsibility from multiple perspectives. Be it the examination of German colonial history (Marejesho Asili Mila Utamaduni Wetu, 2022; Maji Maji Flava and Skull X, 2016), access to resources (White Money, 2021; Fear & Fever 2019) or how transnational surrogacy is incorporated into a postcolonial economic system (Global Belly, 2017).

The jury's statement reads:

"[...] As freelance theatre-makers, they repeatedly elaborate the premisses and conditions for international cultural exchange, artistic dialogue and collaborative theatre-making, moving mindfully and self-critically in the midst of a collective feminist and decolonial questioning of existing global power relations."

Congratulations Flinn Works!

The award ceremony will be combined with an artistic presentation at the Festival Theater der Welt 2023, which will take place from 29 June to 16 July in Frankfurt and Offenbach.

Flinn Works has undertaken research in order to gain a deeper understanding of gestational surrogacy. Is it a blessing of modern medicine or a neocolonial act? Is bearing the child of a stranger work or charity? How do we compensate this ‘labour of love’?

With its ethical complexity and emotional polarisation, its legal grey zones and its medical realities the industry comes alive on the Zoom stage.

Ruanda ist der Shooting-Star in Sachen Gleichberechtigung. Nach dem Genozid 1994 machte das Land die Geschlechtergerechtigkeit zur politischen Grundlage. Das deutsche Theaterstück "Learning Feminism from Rwanda" der Truppe Flinn Works hinterfragt die Frauen-Quote als politisches Instrument: Wie verändert sie Kultur und Geisteshaltung? Was kann Europa von Ruanda lernen?

Wir zeigen Learning Feminism from Rwanda von Flinn Works und Künstler:innen aus Ruanda am Fr/Sa 27./18.11. in HELLERAU.

Am 24., 25. und 26.06. zeigen die Sophiensaele Flinn Works: Global Belly_Zoom, eine Performance von Flinn Works zum Thema transnationale Leihmutterschaft: Ist sie ein Segen der Medizin oder Kolonialisierung der Körper? Ist das Austragen eines fremden Kindes Arbeit oder Nächstenliebe? Wie hoch wird diese „Liebesarbeit“ bezahlt? Flinn Works: Global Belly_Zoom porträtiert Menschen im Leihmutterschafts-Geschäft zwischen grenzenloser Sehnsucht, fein justierter Intimität, heißen Debatten und der kühlen Logik des Marktes.

it’s always such a special moment for me when a musical encounter, a recording, a composition, a long musical process of communication finally turns into this black disk and here it is. i met sophia nzayisenga in rwanda last year and recorded her inanga and vocals and she asked me to produce these three songs which are now on this single thanks to the YnfnD label, thanks to Rwigema Parfait, thanks to Flinn Works and Goethe-Institut Kigali.
there’s a small interview included in this single where i speak with sophia about her role as a feminist musician in rwanda, pushing the boundaries of patriarchy in the arts in a country which is statistically speaking very progressive already when it comes to gender equality.

This new single by Sophia Nzayisenga will be out next month on the much beloved label YnfnD. I recorded some of her feminist Inanga songs last year in Rwanda and produced them in a way which she likes. It was initially meant as a soundtrack for the Flinn Works performance "Learning Feminism From Rwanda" but we figured that these beautiful songs about the empowerment of women need to see their proper release.
Tonight she will play the release concert in Kigali (with Rwigema Parfait on electronics! Click here for a Zoom link and see you there - I will also take part in a Q&A with her after the show.

// LEARNING FEMINISM FROM RWANDA

„Die Produktion LEARNING FEMINISM FROM RWANDA der Gruppe Flinn Works in der Regie von Sophia und Lisa Stepf, die kurz vor dem zweiten Lockdown in den Berliner Sophiensaelen Premiere hatte, ist ein Beispiel dafür, wie ein kluger, witziger, reflektierter und dennoch entschlossener Umgang mit dem Thema Gleichberechtigung aussehen kann.“
(Theater der Zeit, 01/2021, Dorte Lena Eilers, „Auf sie mit Gebrüll“, S. 19)

Leider konnte LEARNING FEMINISM FROM RWANDA im Theater Freiburg coronabedingt noch nicht gezeigt werden.
Heute im : Schauspielerin Natacha Muziramakenga mit einem eigenen Text im 22. Türchen unseres Adventskalenders (alle Türchen hier: https://bit.ly/38qgf2v) – sie arbeitet u. a. mit Flinn Works Sophiensaele Theater Freiburg und dem Goethe-Institut.
