The Versions We Tell
Xina Mercken / Ogutu Muraya / Abhishek Thapar

Thu 4 Nov '21 20:00 uur
The Amsterdam Storytelling Festival - Storytelling

One story, three storytellers, ever changing perspectives in a multimedia show

[theaterzaal | 75min | in English]

In a futile attempt to portray a story in its wholeness Xina Mercken, Abhishek Thapar and Ogutu Muraya take on one of the most well-known stories in the world. Together they strive to understand the story, how it came to be, how it changed, what was lost, gained, and what, perhaps, never shared before. The result is a multimedia storytelling show that does not give answers, but rather offers new questions, leaving the audience to decide which version they themselves will choose to tell.

When stories travel, as they tend to do, they change, adjusting themselves to the sensibilities of the tellers, the listeners and the times. And so we end up with many versions of the same story, each with a limited perspective and therefore incomplete. It is the storyteller’s challenge to be consistently aware of these limitations and to always be looking for new viewpoints, even, and perhaps especially, those we are uncomfortable with. In The Versions We Tell, that challenge is passed on to the audience.

Xina Mercken, Abhishek Thapar and Ogutu Muraya are theatermakers and storytellers who share an interest in political engagement, history and, especially, in how stories are made, by whom and to what effect. Kenya based Ogutu Muraya’s work is embedded in the practice of Orature. In his work, he searches for new forms of storytelling where socio-political aspects merge with the belief that art is an important catalyst for questioning certainties. Abhishek Thapar is currently building an artistic research and practice in post-colonial epistemologies, historiographic metafiction and storytelling. Xina Mercken’s current work focuses on understanding the source of story’s power, the importance of multiplicity within stories and the responsibility of the narrator wielding the power of story.
