Photos by Xolani Tulumani.  Gavin Krastin is a South African performance artist working in live art to occupy and subvert notions of presentation and representation, and winner of the 2021 Standard Bank Young Artist Award for Performance Art. His work spans the worlds of theatre, visual arts and contemporary performance, and his interests lie in the permeability and politics of the body’s representation, limitation and operation in alternative, layered spaces. Krastin’s practice is inspired by his immediate South African environment and one’s positionality and transgression in the history embedded in its shifting socio-political landscape within a global-local framework.Image removed.

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.
