JOANA TISCHKAU (Germany)

Colonastics is a fitness workout that doubles up as a critical whiteness lecture.

Colonastics invites you to clear your surroundings for a sweaty workout that decolonises your body, mind and spirit. Take part in a physical practice that developed out of the unmarked embodiment of whiteness and which carves out a blueprint of white masculine embodiment, shedding light onto the colonial and neo-colonial practices of the fitness industry.

At last, maybe you can have it all; the rationality of a straight white man paired with the physicality and corporeality of a black woman - let’s get physical!!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Colonastics are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
