Garden State

MAMAZA | Germany & Switzerland

 

«Garden State» gives Fabrice Mazliah and his group MAMAZA the opportunity to establish a utopian state full of pot plants, taken from Basel apartments. A paradise-like garden in Turnhalle Klingental invites you to become part of a special community. You can use this space free of charge to contemplate new modes of coexistence and to put them straight into practice: relax and enjoy yoga courses, concerts, lectures, panel discussions and much more in the garden, and you can even spend the night beneath the leafy sky! The «Garden State» project was inspired by the story of Libertalia, a possibly fictional anarchist island colony founded in the late 17th century near Madagascar in which pirates and freed slaves lived communally in a peaceful environment. As a place of opposition to authoritarian structures and suppression, the «Garden State» is to be understood as a location where everyone comes together as equals. MAMAZA is a collaborative platform based in Frankfurt and works in various constellations. The collective constantly goes against what we expect and challenges our perception of what bodies should do in choreographies. The artists develop stage projects, city interventions and installations.
