Calvin Seretle Ratladi is an award-winning theatre-maker working across the realms of writing, directing, choreography, performance, and production through The Calvin Ratladi Foundation and The South African Theatre Village. His work is primarily concerned with issues pertaining to gender equality, identity, the politics of the body and giving voice to people living with disabilities.
For Season 5 of The Centre for the Less Good Idea, Ratladi is interested in exploring the many opportunities that arise through collaboration and will be experimenting with both performance and written storytelling as forms of embodied narratives.
This Season’s works see Ratladi showcasing his writing, directing, and performance skills through collaborations with writer and performer Sylvaine Strike and dancer Phumlani Mndebele, as well as a work with flautist and performer Bongile Lecoge-Zulu exploring a key monologue from Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot in the context of South Africa.
