Samora Pinderhughes | The Healing Project

Zaal open
Standaard prijs

Ticket price includes a drink

Multi-disciplinary artist, musician and activist Samora Pinderhughes spent 5 years deep in discussion with people around the US, hearing about their experiences healing from incarceration, police brutality and structural violence. From the fertile soil of these conversations has grown a multi-branch “Healing Project” including songs, films, museum exhibitions, and performances around the world.

Pinderhughes will make his Dutch speaking debut on the 150th anniversary of the abolishment of slavery in Suriname and the Dutch colonies in the Caribbean. He will present film and music work of the Healing Project and explore themes of abolition, community building and healing, and speaking truths in private and in public.

Film Screening + Conversation

“The Healing Project is a project I’ve been working on for 8 years, and it’s my try at speaking directly to the many damages that our society’s systems of prison, detention, and structural violence do to people, and to the many beautiful, different and deep ways that people figure out how to heal themselves and others from the things that they go through, in spite of it all.”

– Samora Pinderhughes

Samora Pinderhughes | Composer, pianist/vocalist, artist

Samora Pinderhughes is a composer, pianist/vocalist, interdisciplinary artist, and sur-realist whose work delves into all the things our society tries to hide – about its history, about its structures, and about the individual and daily things we all experience but don’t know how to talk about. His art is an invitation to feel things deeply, and to think deeply about how we all live. He is known for his honest lyrics, his harmonic language, his vulnerable visuals, his sociopolitical commentary, and his commitment to making art that is of use to everyday life.
