Thobile Jane Maphanga

Thobile Jane Maphanga is a Durban based dance practitioner, creative collaborator, and emerging writer whose current preoccupation is with Black female narratives and how Black women are writing themselves into history in the now. Through her research, which is theory and practice led, she explores where and how Black women use their voices and where these voices can be found. Through self-study she journeys to find her authentic voice and learn her true self through processes of questioning and unlearning. Her research methods include, but are not limited to, sitting in wait, listening, and improvisation.
