Transgender in MugabeLand

moderated by MANDHLA.

As part of the Participatory Residency Program, the current artist-in-residence Jordan Chanetsa will share artistic works of herself as well as the documentary Transgender in MugabeLand which touches upon her life as a trans* person living in Zimbabwe.

The evening will be moderated by Mandhla Ndubiwa. Mandhla. is a trans-feminine gender non-comforming multi-media performance artist born and raised in Zimbabwe, Africa. As a current resident in Berlin she combines a blend of experimental R&B and Soul music with visual projections and performative dancing. Her music speaks of the daily trials that Trans*, enby and femme*immigrant bodies experience daily with love, identity, sex and acceptance.

A strong lover of visual beauty, fashion, the art of voguing and music, and her work being displayed in various stages, festivals and artistic institutions such as Whole Festival, Pop Kultur, Munich Kammerspiele, Gropius Bau, Kulturbraurei, and HAU, Hebbel am Ufer to name a few, she promises to bring to you an experience that takes you to a world of beauty and divine epiphanies through fierce queer representation and black femme* power that speaks to the souls that have lived and continue to live through her work.
