Radio No Frequency

19. 4. 2017, Glej Gledališče

Radio ‘Dona Taraddod’, which in Arabic can mean both ‘No hesitation’ or ‘No frequency’, is a volunteer online radio programme; quoting Naji al-Ali, “it is biased towards those who are down under”. The radio began ‘broadcasting’ two years ago, and it is seeking to criticise and rebut the prevailing socio-political, economic, and media rhetoric through the use of drama and ‘dark comedy’ (as needed). Radio Dona Taraddod is a programme of and Multaqa Nabd al-Shababi “Pulse Youth Forum”. The onstage radio show tries to explore different aspects of radio and the backstage of open-air radio scene; by transferring what usually is only heard, to something that is being received and understood also by the other senses, this performance will dig deep into issues such as authority, censorship, class, colonialism, gender, media roles and art.
