SOIREE XD
Conversations on weak signals and future drifts
Weak signals are indicators of emerging trends that have the potential to become defining factors in future society. They can also describe present developments that are felt by some, but underestimated by the vast majority. is an ongoing series of conversations on early signs of deep disruption in business, policy, design, art and culture - driven by latest developments in Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Technologies, Web3 and other fields of (deep) technology. Gathering experts, practitioners, artists and researchers at the cutting edge of their domains, and stirring exchange with an open community that spans sectors, generations and walks of life, offers a new forum for mapping the opportunities and problems of rapid technological and societal change. Most of all, the multi-cities series wants to connect engaged individuals beyond their domains, allowing for new synergies and dynamics.

Soiree XD & Studio dB presents:
mzimu, (noun) : “soulful intermedium exploration”


>>> FLYER


#DATE

on September 29th (Friday) year (0)2023,
Doors Open from: 18:00:00 / official end: late.



#LOCATION

Studio dB
Uferstrasse 8, Gesundbrunnen
13357 Berlin

https://www.instagram.com/studio.db.berlin/
https://studiodb.webflow.io



“mzimu” is a word that originates from the different dialects of the Chewa language in the Southern Eastern region of Africa, meaning vision/soul and spirit. The language is spoken in different forms in Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia, and Zimbabwe where it is derived as Chichewa, Nyanja, or Chinyanja in the different regions and countries.

The noun “mzimu” was chosen due to its versatility in meaning, to align with the fluid nature of the evening where we will explore the mediums of music, visual art, and performance and the relativity of the perception of time over an evening. The artists chosen come from diverse disciplines, as well as different backgrounds: with the goal of exploring an experimental form of hybrid curation to inspire the guest.

A cool ambient set by Chris TIAMO will warm the evening up, with live painting by Younes Mohammadi running simultaneously, to portray the flickering flows of the initial onset of an evening. Slowly falling into the screening of two short films: “Rituals,” directed by Alex Brack (Kartago Film), and “YAHOO BOY,” directed by Monde Gumede (SHIBOBO Cinema), each having their own Q&A round. The screening will be accented by a warm incense burning with incense chambers from Tycho Koll.

Jun Suzuki will grace the evening with his heavenly notes in a live performance following the screenings. Afterward, surprise DJ acts will take the stage to close the night with Afrohouse and Amapiano-inspired melodies, featuring special guest appearances and the resident DJ from Refuge Worldwide and African Acid Is The Future, O.N.A. Join us for the first event in this series, and we hope you'll leave feeling inspired, wearing a grin, and with a broader perspective and a warm heart.

With love <3
