“Performative” My Alex at Basha Uhuru festival
September 17, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
“Performative” was the first iteration of a curated evening of performance art for the Basha Uhuru festival which celebrates June 16th Youth Day. The event was held at Constitution Hill in June 2016 and was produced by Kalashnikov gallery. My contribution to the evening was bringing the “My Alex: Youth Perceptions of Place” to the project. This project was initiated by the JDA (Johannesburg Development Agency) and implemented by The Coloured Cube. The Coloured Cube brought me in as a facilitator to work with the 15 youths from Alex. For 1 month I worked with these young people from Alex through several workshops in reimagining their past, present and future perceptions of their space through creative means. The group and I developed a performance about ‘their Alex’ that was then performed on this evening as part of the festival.
