Thabo Rapoo is a Pretoria-based dancer, choreographer, and performing artist.
Rapoo cites the act of observation as a crucial factor to his creative process. As a result, much of his work is concerned with human nature – how we move through certain spaces as well as our various forms of non-verbal communication. Labour, exercise, fatigue, and the electric energy of the inner city contrasted with the darkness and silence of its abandoned buildings are some of Rapoo’s areas of exploration for Season 6 of The Centre for the Less Good Idea.
This Season sees Rapoo lending his performative skills to many of The Centre’s collaborating artists, as well as exploring artistic disciplines outside of his own through a series of improvisational, collaborative works over the course of the Season’s workshopping sessions.
