About Selogadi Mampane
Selogadi Mampane began performing at the age of 11 and has since never stopped. Her passion for performance necessitated exploration in the fields of research. She is currently undertaking her Masters studies at the University of Pretoria, in the field of gender, race, cultural, performance and film studies, focusing her research around female masculinity. She describes herself as an activist who utilises inter-disciplinary arts mediums to explore social issues. Her talents cover the disciplines of writing, directing and performance in film and theatre. Her performance work has been shown at the University of Pretoria and she has performed at platforms such as the Grahamstown Arts festival. She is most concerned with utilising arts mediums to explore the stories and experiences of LGBTIQ women. Her performance art is constructed through the processes of workshop, where she constructs art out of explorations done with her cast and the community around her. Selogadi believes that art is the means to explore, interpret and understand the world around her.
