Mamela Nyamza

Mamela Nyamza is a South-African dancer, teacher, choreographer and activist. Blending traditional and contemporary techniques and styles, her work interlaces aspects of her personal biography as a Black African, lesbian mother with her examination of social grievances. With her knowledge of traditional African and Spanish dance and with the movement vocabulary of jazz, mime and butoh, Nyamza’s aesthetics elude categorization.
