CPA: Mzamo Nondlwana "Dance for the Future"
Mzamo Nondlwana dances towards the future. This solo performance, in collaboration with sound artist Bassano Bonelli and visual artist Ipek Hamzaoğlu, imagines an alternative future rooted in radical queer-feminist movements – a future that denounces white supremacy values that are embedded in domination and destruction.
"Dance for the Future" taps into the collective consciousness, sharing experiences during a pandemic while reinforcing the power of community as a form of healing. It is research on a dance for the future and "a space where supernatural, fantastical, historical, and futuristic elements merge together" (Mark Dery, American author, lecturer and cultural critic). "Dance for the Future" is shaped by themes of collectivity, grief, and transformation using notions crafted by marginalised communities, especially Black, queer-feminist, migrant communities, the global south and alternative movements which have disclosed and fought against heteronormative structures. This dance is dedicated to a better future.
