Laila Soliman – MUSEUM OF LUNGS

MUSEUM OF LUNGS is a musical documentary performance that excavates archive material and mixes intimate confession with haunted histories to convey vulnerability as a core of strength, and illness as a site of resistance and transformation.

In contemporary South Africa, where tuberculosis is endemic, a writer tells her personal story of living with undiagnosed TB for years before receiving treatment. She asks questions about the precariousness of our individual and collective bodies, highlighting the colonial and systemic racial structures as well as the violence of our healthcare and political systems.

The writer Stacy Hardy, her puppet doppelganger and musicians and composers Neo Muyanga and Nancy Mounir collaborate with director Laila Soliman to create a multi-vocal performance of love, loneliness, fragility, and death, addressing the fundamentally impossible bravery of being alive and being human, today.

 

A co-production with FFT Düsseldorf, Kaaitheater Brussels, Kaserne Basel and HAU Berlin.
