Mamela Nyamza HATCHED

Quick Center For The Arts
1/27/18 - 1/28/18


Created and performed by South African artist Mamela Nyamza, HATCHED is an autobiographical work that seeks to convey deeply personal and challenging issues of culture, tradition, and a woman’s evolving sexuality within the customary rites and rituals of marriage. HATCHED tells the story of a woman faced with a life of dualism: between countries, identities and relationships. Nyamza shares her challenges – battling with her identity as a mother while clinging onto her life as a performer and being a South African woman performing in Western/European contexts. Nyamza addresses these issues by juxtaposing movement vocabulary and accompaniment from both cultures, referencing classical Western music and dance, and also traditional African vocal scores and grounded movement. Nyamza has created a poignant story that speaks to feelings of conflict with one’s own identity and questioning where we belong in the world.
