“S[CH]til” is both cultured scream (german s[CH]rei) and insistent silence (German s[CH]weigen). It is the reaction to the rumbling in a society that believes to have lost its identity. In four interconnected stages, Amina Abdulkadir together with her audience traces this [CH] identity, exploiting the scratchy “CH” sound so typical for this country to reach catharsis. In this process, stereotyping becomes liberation, art becomes purpose and the question about identity becomes the answer itself.
