Another Ghost Party follows the collaboration between Manon de Boer and dancer and choreographer Latifa Laâbissi since its beginning in 2016. Revolving around a cast of “ghosts” who have influenced both of their practices — from Lygia Clark and Frantz Fanon to Beyoncé and Pier Paolo Pasolini —, the collaboration generated a performance (Ghost Party (1) ), two films (Ghost Party (2)  and Persona) and this book.
To the many dialogues involved in de Boer’s and Laâbissi’s previous projects, Another Ghost Party adds a host of new ones: conversations between Laurens Otto, Manon de Boer and Latifa Laâbissi; Fabian Flückiger and Laurens Otto; Laila Melchior, Ailton Krenak and Suely Rolnik; and a fictive conversation by Olivier Marboeuf. These conversations highlight some of the key artistic and political questions that mobilized de Boer’s and Laâbissi’s collaboration, notably with regards to language, accents and the voice, divergent strands of modernisms, and ecological urgencies.
