On Saturday morning’s edition of Saturday’s Role With Reno, host Renos Spanoudes spoke to Tlotlego Gaogakwe about Afriqueer.
AfriQueer is a dreamscape, a queer meditation on masculinities. Audiences are invited to embark on a ritualistic journey with the performers through a natural space/environment. The witnessing participants will encounter evocative images, physical theatre, traditional healing dances, mystical characters and a poetic and enigmatic wolf-like narrator who evokes memories of love, passion and grief. These theatrical moments are devised to elicit a sensory experience, an emotional trajectory, and a subtle questioning of what it is/not to be a so-called ‘man’. More importantly, the work speaks back to the redeeming possibilities of love.
