Boyzie Cekwana & Panaibra Canda Gabriel / The Floating Outfit Project / South Africa & Mozambique


In 1984, Samora Machel’s Mozambique and Pieter Botha’s South Africa signed a non-aggression pact. The agreement would trickle away into the river whose name it bears, the Inkomati, crossing the two countries. The two choreographers use this abortive treaty as a pretext to explore their unique identities, held up to the mirror of a history and geography obliterated by colonial borders. In The Inkomati (dis)cord, four characters, sitting on a bench, watch us – a kind of foreman, a kind of charismatic leader with his Castro-style cap, a “colonial” and a woman with no legs. They all have their faces hidden by white paper, simultaneously evoking ethnic masks, sanitary equipment, Ku Klux Klan hoods and people with no faces. The halting gestures seem to ask the forced stereotype question: how can you be yourself when you’re being pigeonholed with a prescribed identity? How do you move when every gesture already has connotations: white, revolutionary, tribal, martial, labourer, black?

Until recently, he was Artistic Director of the Jomba! Contemporary Dance Festival, in Durban, SA. He is currently involved in the creation of a regional, southern African collaborative with artists in Mozambique, Madagascar, the DRC, La Reunion and Zimbabwe. After a two year hiatus from performing and creating, he is working on his newest project, a trilogy which begins with the solo, Influx Controls: I wanna be wanna be. This work will premiere at the Zurcher TheaterSpektakel in August.
