Poetry Seen: Makhafula Vilakazi – Concerning Blacks

Quaz | October 25th, 2018 | poetry seen | No Comments

In his first solo show in five years, Makhafula Vilakazi has curated an expression of the quotidian blended with the ideological that concerns blackness in the settler republic.

It is a complex mourning and rebellion that places the onus on blacks to do with their condition and lives as they see fit.

The poet will be in league with M’Afrika, Koketso Poho and M’Afrika, Nhlanhla Ngqaqu from Iphupho L’ka Biko among others. The works are steeped in the spiritual and the offering will comprise offerings from his new album scheduled to drop in the first quarter of 2019, as well as works from the seminal debut, I Am Not Going Back To The Township.

DATE: 03 November

VENUE: Joburg Theatre
