Tswalo is a body of poems constructed to fragment in a way a narrative that is carried in both physicality and voice. It is placed in a timeless space of existence, and explores the primary themes of being: chaos and beauty, blood and birth, love and war, in the same frame. The body of work was conceived through celebrating and investigating performance poetry in a theatrical space: poetry as a language of liberation, both performative and literal in this contemporary time, and as a tool to explore the discipline of performance, borrowing from that of crafting a poem.
