THOSE GHELS

An invitation from Buhlebezwe Siwani and Chuma Sopotela, to view "Those Ghels", a physical performance deconstructing the representation of women's bodies in music videos.


The performance piece, performed by Chuma Sopotela and Buhlebezwe Siwani, begins with the 2 performers dancing, recreating movements from various 21st-century songs that have shaped the manner women think and behave, we begin breaking the movements down to normal movements. Behind and on the bodies, the projections of some of the videos interact with videos taken of normal people. It is a surveillance of sorts, of women and the manner in which we look at ourselves and how the male gaze has fallen upon women. Throughout the performance, we subvert the meaning and look at each other, mimic the music videos and each other.


Performances are scheduled for:

Friday 26 May at 7-8pm

Saturday 27 May at 4pm

Entry fee: R70
