Abstract

I am a female solo dancer, teacher, and researcher currently based at the University of Cape Town. My formative dance years were in release-based contemporary dance, 1 contact improvisation, and mpantsula 2 in Cape Town. To that I later added eight years of study of butoh in Japan with Ohno Yoshito. In my work, I embrace my background in multiple dance and cultural forms that include but are not exclusive to Africa.
