broadcast by KUNSTRADIO (ORF, Vienna) 

“start asking, where am I coming from…” often a central question in my work with community organisations & groups of artists in Africa; here, I’m posing the question also to myself: through conversations with women of my mother’s generation in Germany (…); I’m asking the women to listen to recordings I made with African women conducted in English & “translate” or respond to parts they may choose & relate to in German (…). * complete text & credits

Kunstradio also broadcast the LONG WALK radio play in 2010. A dedicated page “Listen! Babylon!” with resources & background information on LONG WALK is published on Creative Africa Network.
