Anne-Fay is one half of artist collective Onyx & Ivory along with her brother, filmmaker Felix Kops. Together, they traveled the enslaved diaspora of their ancestors in the opposite direction (the Netherlands, Aruba, Curaçao, Suriname, China and the former African Gold Coast). The impressions made during these journeys have been assembled into a striking audiovisual show. REASPORA is a quest for unearthing historical testimonials that have never been passed on across generations, stories Anne-Fay and Felix couldn’t find in the history books.

ABOUT LGW ON
Earlier this year, the 14th edition of Le Guess Who? was postponed to 2021. Now, the organization proudly presents an alternative hybrid event, titled ON/OFF, happening 13-15 November, 2020. ON/OFF is a two-part program for international, as well as local, festival visitors.
LGW ON introduces a freely accessible online TV channel with videos, films and documentaries selected by past performers, as well as our new video production ‘Reports from Other Continents’; previously unseen LGW live recordings; live sessions with Dutch artists; Zoom interviews; uncommissioned work of video artists; a documentary about Le Guess Who?; and highlights from the thirteen-year archive of the festival.
LGW ON can be streamed via this page starting 13 November.
The initial program for LGW ON can be found here.
LGW OFF is a two-day program happening throughout the city of Utrecht, The Netherlands, with over 50 performances from Dutch acts, to be hosted at some familiar–as well as new and unknown–festival locations.
