In July The Centre for the Less Good Idea hosted ‘Histories of the Invisible’, a musically poetic endeavour by Dr Andile Khumalo in collaboration with Siphiwe Shiburi, Raimi Gbadamosi, Dean Salant, Andisiwe Mpinda and Velaphi Ramphele.
HISTORIES OF THE INVISIBLE is an intimate look at the role culture and tradition play when one escapes home and lands in the city of gold.
The piece journeys along the path of being an outsider in everyone else’s home. It exposes the intimate reality of living in between the gaps of other people’s existence and trying to find belonging through the numerous amounts of paper work needed to officiate citizenship.
The piece illuminates questions of access and the threat of the lack thereof. This musical performance finds peace and creativity in the collaborations of sound as a means of translating existence. e. In this way, consolation for their dead existence is exhibited through this colourful and lively performance.
