INVISIBLE EMPIRE

 

In ‘The Invisible Empire’ Jeannette Ehlers has worked with her father, Roy Clement Pollard, as narrator and

performer. Her father is from Trinidad, her mother Danish. By involving her own ethnic background she

magnifies reality to study the consequences of eroding information.

Ehlers` works thematically revolve around Danish slave trade in colonial times. With `The Invisible

Empire` she looks at today’s slave trade, also known as `human trafficking`. By introducing her father in

this context, she subtly intertwines her personal history with the narrative of the work. Her questioning

of historical ties and personal implications unfolds a strong pull on the viewer while raising awareness

for servitude in globalized societies.
