A special focus in the production will be given to gender/sexuality identity construc- tions, working in the space between the most progressive legislation of Sub-saharan Africa to this regard and a reality that remains conflictive. Dealing with more complex processes related to religious practices and powers, as well as the cultural and political interpretations, re-interpretations and sometimes an instrumentalization of tradition and heritage. On the other hand, the re-evaluation of heritages and tra- ditions long related to segregated cultural groups are being articulated in new ways with urban life, and with self-defined contemporary practices and productions, that we want to include in this project. Reflecting on post-colonial/post-apartheid on- going power struggles and the artistic deconstructions of colonial imageries of the other.
