We welcome the new Thami Mnyele Foundation Residency Award winner Kwanele Finch Thusi in Amsterdam! In collaboration with Afrovibes Festival, we have selected Thusi to be in the residency for the months of September to October to prepare for his performances at the Afrovibes Festival.
Pina (solo & duet) - Afrovibes
With Pina, South African dancer Kwanele Finch Thusi is building a new mythology of black and queer bodies and identities. In this way he/she opens new frameworks to reduce the image of a society that mainly sees masculinity as strong, powerful and masculine, by confirming and showing the vulnerability and gentleness of the male body. For Kwanele Thusi, his own black queer identity is the starting point for all his work.
Please find the details of the 4 performances in the link below. We look forward to seeing Thusi's performances!
