Location:

Bitch Where the Fuck is my Manifesto?! looks at new ways of producing work for the black female body. It examines having the black female body in the theater space alone, without other bodies relating to it. This solo by Duduzile Mathonsi uses movement and voice to tell the stories of the body, questioning and exploring whether the black female body could exist with its own agencies, its own terms, its archives. By doing this, Mathonsi indigenizes the room. The performance looks at navigating the kaleidoscopic and the chameleon versus what the body really is.

Duduzile Mathonsi is a South African artist living and working in Norway. She is an actress, writer, singer and performance artist.
