In «Black Body Amnesia», Jaamil Olawale Kosoko enlivens a personal archive. Jaamil brings to the stage visual and verbal fragments, melding vocalisation, music, spoken word, movement, moving-image, sculpture and fabric.

With an alternating cast of DJs, singers and a sound designer, Jaamil explores how marginalized communities record and affirm their existence through collaborative actions and protests. Here, the overarching question is how these narratives of personal freedom can be archived to subvert culturally charged fields of systemic oppression, loss and erasure.
