MAM provides well respected curation both nationally and internationally...
Award-winning choreographer and art activist Mamela Nyamza, who has been creating works that challenge sterotypes, has added another accolade under her name.
Born in Gugulethu, Cape Town, Nyamza was this week honoured when Jomba! Festival announced her as Jomba! 2023 Legacy Artist.
Jomba (which means to jump in Zulu) is one of SA’s renowned contemporary dance festivals, which has been happening for 25 years.
It has given many local dancers a platform to showcase their talent.
Other artists including Jay Pather, Vincent Sekwati Mantsoe and Musa Hlatshwayo have been honoured at the festival.
Nyamza, who has danced on international stages, says she is honoured by the gesture.
