UNFIX Festival: A Recipe for Planters Punch / Alberta Whittle
Sun 31 March 2019
A Receipe for Plantation Punch Alberta Whittle
The performance piece, A Recipe for Planters Punch is part of a continued exploration of blackness, Diaspora and surveillance. Using reenactment from different sources, including satirical print, A West India Sportsman published by William Holland, choones by Rihanna and memories of the Middle Passage, this piece dives into histories of colonial debt, reparations and visualities of race.
In this piece Whittle locates conditions of blackness as intrinsically related to historical and contemporary methods of surveillance, which fix blackness through a lens of the Other. Embedded within these methods is the afterlife of slavery, which leaves its print on everything.
