Narratives from the African Diaspora

A journey of being, becoming and existence, AMKA explores the awakening of black bodies from the African diaspora in Australia. Rethinking and re-centering African identity through trans-disciplinary storytelling where the past, present and future encounter one another.

Spoken word, music, dance, theatre and projection come together to showcase narratives portraying powerful experiences of belonging, representation and emancipation.

AMKA features an ensemble of performing artists and musicians brought together by cohealth Arts Generator. Created by artists Akimera, Geskeva Komba, Manal Younus, Yaw Faso, Solomon Salew, and film maker Ez Eldin Deng with original soundtrack and music by hip hop artists and producers Joe Motley, and Mohamed Komba aka Momo (Diafrix).
