Thulani Chauke is a performing artist, choreographer, and dancer. Chauke has learned from and worked with companies and schools such as Moving into Dance Mophatong, Vuyani Dance Theatre, and Forgotten Angle Theatre Collective. He is also a co-founder of The Broken Borders Art Project and formed part of Season 1 of The Centre for the Less Good Idea with his production titled History of the Main Complaint. For Season 4, Chauke infuses his innate curiosity in abstract forms of communication – the inherent languages in everyday expressions and movements of the body – into a host of collaborative performances with various musicians, actors, and visual artists. This Season also sees Chauke working with long-time collaborators Fana Tshabalala and Themba Mbuli to further explore the possibilities of movement, and to embrace the challenges that come with placing the body in unfamiliar contexts and forms of communication.
