Episode 4 Listen to Season 2, Episode 4 of The ICA Podcast! Featuring choreographer and academic Nomcebisi Moyikwa Join us as we journey with Moyikwa through the research, creation and performance of her 2017 work Qash Qash. Comprised of a series of visually and aurally arresting portraits of black subjectivity, Qash Qash is both an exploration of, and an insistence on, everyday moments of aliveness; lineage and continuity; sexual pleasure; interruptions; and community.

She was born and raised in Makhanda. Her artistic (anti-disciplinary/genre) practice is a movement towards developing conceptual spaces to think about creative expressions of Black South African artists. Her research interests are in the dynamics of cultural production, pedagogy, arts, and community. Her mother's neck is her reminder of the possibility of ease; of the aliveness of breath.Image removed. Nomcebisi MoyikwaAbout The ICA Podcast The Podcast – launched in July 2020 – emerged out of the ICA's 2019 publication Acts of Transgression: Contemporary Live Art in South Africa and extends the work begun by the book through conversations with the creators and curators of Live Art. The role of the Podcast has been particularly important in this time of the pandemic, when live performance has been difficult and sometimes impossible, but the intimacy and expansiveness of listening remains critical.Season 1 looked at the body of work of 8 diverse artists. In Season 2, we're doing things a bit differently by offering each episode as a deep dive into a single performance:We the Not-Not People! -Things done, not told.
