Lorin Sookool is a Durban-based, independent choreographer, performer and dance facilitator.
Much of Sookool’s work, from her dance pieces to her experimentations with performance in public spaces, takes its inspiration from the personal and public politics of the everyday. Hair, the body, the gaze, identity, and the ability to heal or make sense of past traumas through art have been some of Sookool’s areas of exploration during the workshopping sessions of The Centre for the Less Good Idea’s 6th Season.
Citing her time with The Centre as a transitional period in her practice, much of Sookool’s work this Season has been characterised by her willingness to collaborate with other artists and artistic disciplines, as well as her own fascinations with Johannesburg, particularly the bustling reaches of Maboneng and Jeppestown.
