The Anticolonials begins by following the steps of an iconic Aboriginal activist Anthony Martin Fernando into interwar Black London, then trans-locates between the Aboriginal Tent Embassy, Canberra, a meeting of autonomous misfits in a backroom in Bethnal Green, London, revolutionaries on Mohammed Mahmoud Street, Cairo and an underground party in East Berlin. Whilst embodying liberationist acts of radical nudity, the performance offers a patchwork reading from scraps of material culture and glimpses of mediated life.

The lecture was written and performed for Momentum Berlin whilst I was shifting between Sydney, London and Berlin in February 2012.
