Napo Masheane is a Johannesburg-based spoken word poet, director, playwright, and performer.
Season 6 of The Centre for the Less Good Idea sees Masheane’s interests around labour, gender, silence, and migrancy taking shape in a number of performance-based explorations. Water, blood, sweat, and written and oral history are some of the key themes that Masheane explored during Season 6’s workshop sessions while the migration of both labour and resources from Lesotho into Johannesburg served as another area of interest.
An ongoing attempt at interdisciplinary collaboration outside of her own specialisations, channeled through the framework of labour and routine in the city have informed much of Masheane’s work across the Season.
