Rebecca Pokua Korang is an Afro-German multidisciplinary artist from Berlin. She has been working in the field of performing arts since 2012. In 2017, she completed her Bachelor of Arts in Dance at Kingston University in London. Since then she collaborated with several artists including  Gloria Höckner ("Sentimental Bits - This Magic Is In Spite Of Me", 2022), Sunny Pfalzer ("Hold a Ghost", 2020), Anna Ehrenstein ("Albanian Conference: Home is where the hatred is", 2021 & "Clans of Berlin", 2023), Magda Korsinsky ("Patterns", 2019), Okwui Okpokwasili (10th Berlin Biennale, KW, 2018) and others.

In 2020, together with 8 female artists, she founded the theater collective Thesmophoria. Thesmophoria is multidisciplinary and develops ideas through improvisation, research and discussion. In doing so, the collective uses the genre of comedy to open a space for discussion on issues around gender politics and the patriarchy while making people laugh. Performances take place in public spaces. For the production of "Grimm Sisters" in 2021, Thesmophoria were funded by Fonds Darstellende Künste. In the summer of 2022, Thesmophoria's 3rd production, "Sherose", was created.

Korang also works in the field of cultural education. In 2022 she gave several workshops at the Tanz- und Theatertreffen der Jugend, as well as the 12th Berlin Biennale. Since 2018, she has been directing her own funded theater and empowerment projects with children and youth. At Heimathafen Neukölln, Korang led the Active Player group until June 2022, which celebrated a success with the production "The pressure is real!". In Reinickendorf East, she produced a short film as part of the empowerment project PowerGirls, consisting of Black girls* aged 12-15, which is expected to be released in the first quarter of 2023. Furthermore, the exhibition of the project results of the youth project "A Potent Drop" at CCA Berlin, which was funded by the Academy of Arts, is coming up in February 2023.

In 2022, several artistic works were created in collaboration and solo. In the beginning of 2022 she received the residency funding flausen+ for her research with the working title "Akpeteshie", which enabled her to further develop her work with sound and she now increasingly works with video and sound in dialogue with dance. This experiential work has also been reflected in her multimedia work "Sonnets of Rage," which was exhibited at Feldfünf in September 2022 as part of the Who Cares Art Festival. "Sonnets of Anger“ is an afrofuturistic 2-channel video installation with 3 sound works and performative content.

Korang developed the concept and directed the music video for "Deutschungshoheit" by Afro-German singer Malonda, which was released in late 2022 and received positive media response. The audio-visual car installation "Clans of Berlin" was created in collaboration with Anna Ehrenstein, which was shown as part of the exhibition "Carpark" (art director: Marenka Krasomil) in February 2023 in Berlin, as well as at the Clinch Festival in Hannover.

In 2019, Korang curated the exhibition at the African Food Festival Berlin called "Afropolitan Analogies". Her heart project is "Us People" - an editorial- project in solidarity with LGBT+ Rights Ghana. The project was featured in Vogue Germany and Daddy Magazine, among others, for which she wrote two articles.
