By Ziza Ngabonziza Patrick

This work-in-progress performance is an extract from a durational piece by Ziza. In this part of the work, they invite you to engage with the complexity of the body examining its inherent information, including grief, traumas and joy.


They encourage you to embark on an inward journey to decontextualise narratives, to identify common patterns from personal yet universal experiences. This exploration aims to help us discover new possibilities and imagine a world where individuals can assert and see themselves, take up space and own their voice.
