Anders Eiebakke

with one comment

Eibakke will produce two radio programs, the first is based on a monologue mixed with quotations and historical recordings of voices from North African/Iberian history, sweeping through history from the time of the Moors´ founding of Murcia through the “re-conquest” and so-called Spanish Renaissance and the Catholic Monarchs, Colonisation, the social unrest and Civil War of the 30´s and up to the current political situation. The program will also discuss Islam’s historical role in European culture, and the current wave of Islamophobia and racism.

The second program is based on a distanced, yet brutal monologue describing the enclave Melilla from Moroccon soil. Using micro drones the program will film the perimeter and the city itself, and eventually trying to cross the Mediterrenean from a more Westward position.
