We are a disparate group of artists with different backgrounds that often feels the weight of labels and categorization. This performance is an opportunity for us to stretch our artistic muscles, and find points of overlap and communication between
each other’s art. How do South African composers navigate the intricacies of Chinese poetry in translation? What meaning do Chinese musicians ascribe to Afrikaans? How does an illustrator work with theatre? etc. In Betwixt, Between, we are interested in playing the grey area; we seek to embrace ambiguity.
