I have performed and created dance works for Tumbuka Dance Company, and teach young Zimbabweans in Schools and community centers. I stand on the shoulders of artistic giants like Germaine Acogny, Nora Chipaumire who have inspired me to be tenacious, remain true and passionate for dance within my community.
I have been professionally an artist for close to twenty years.
I am interested in how arts/dance could be used as a medium to start dialogue on mentals illness, which probably responsible for many undiagnosed fatalities in my community. The grant will facilitate a platform for the possibility to share experiences with a group of women on effects of mental illness.
Objective- create a interactive, playful and evolving dance work that can be shared online and possibly used in live perfomances as starting point for discussion on mental illness and action.
