A family history between Sri Lanka, England and Northern Germany is the starting point for investigations into the most unreliable form of documentation – memory.
Mixed from impressions such as photos, media, narratives of other people and one’s own imagination, fictive places and events arise, imaginary elements mix with reality. MANGO SHOP is an installation performance that revolves around finding, remembering and constructing places and the accompanying (hi)stories, and invites to linger together in an atmospheric setting. Welcome to the MANGO SHOP!
Zahava Rodrigo has been working as a stage and costume designer for music, dance and theater productions since 2013. Projects have led her in recent years i.a. to Kampnagel Hamburg, Theater Bremen, Staatstheater Mainz, Radialsystem V, Volksbühne Berlin, Theater Oberhausen and Ballhaus Ost. In addition, she created installation works for exhibitions in the Bundeskunsthalle Bonn, the Städtische Galerie Wolfsburg and the Ruhrtriennale 2015.
MANGO SHOP is her first work in the field of performing arts under her own artistic direction. For this, she works with the means she is familiar with and places a clear focus on a visual narrative form in an installative setting.
Running time: approx. 80 minutes.
Language no problem.
