No Dance, No Palaver is the culmination of artist Onyeka Igwe’s research into the Aba Women’s War of 1929. All of the films use the first anti-colonial uprising in Nigeria as an entry point to experiment with colonial moving images relating to West Africa during the first half of the 20th century. The series serves as an attempt to use critical proximity, being close to, with or amongst, the visual trauma of the colonial archive to transform the way in which we know the people it contains.
This programme has been co-curated with LUX Scotland and Onyeka Igwe, and Onyeka has chosen two films to be shown alongside her trilogy.
Filmmaker Onyeka Igwe will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.
These films have been programmed in partnership with LUX Scotland.
