The performance piece, A Recipe for Planters Punch uses reenactment to create new memories for questioning accepted histories of white supremacy. The location of my performance at the Tobacco Warehouse in Greenock provided a space directly implicated in contested histories and imbued with residual memories of colonialism and slavery. A Recipe for Planters Punch locates conditions of blackness as intrinsically related to historical and contemporary methods of surveillance. A key aim in my performance was to challenge this coded surveillance, which fixes blackness through a lens of the Other, to a surveillance of whiteness as a normative position. During the performance, I called on different audience members to assist me with making a drink of planters punch, ensuring that the gaze of the audience moved between us and did not remain resolutely fixed upon myself as Other.
