Stomper out of Zambia from Jay Rox. Things of note in this Lusaka-streets clip: choreographed dancing from a masked trio, one-lens sunglass-rocking and an absolute banger of a beat. Watch above and check out more from Jay Rox. (via SB)
Koleka Putuma has released an audio book for 'Collective Amnesia' following the tremendous success of the anthology.
Koleka Putuma has returned with the release of an audio book for her successful debut anthology, Collective Amnesia. The outspoken South African poet, queer feminist and theatre practitioner returns with her unique voice to add a sonic experience to her successful seminal work.
<p><em>Collective Amnesia (The Audio Experience)</em> is in collaboration with PaperCranes Collective, an interdisciplinary arts production company. Currently on 10 reprints in South Africa, it has also received awards including the 2018 Glenna Luschei Prize for African Poetry. Putuma moves with an <a href="https://www.okayafrica.com/i-would-rather-breathe-than-think-outside-the-box/" target="_self">unstoppable momentum</a> and continues to unravel the disturbing collective amnesia of the nation with the release of this audio book which will be made publicly available on October 8th 2020.</p>

</script></p><p><em>Collective Amnesia</em> was adapted into a play titled<em> <a href="https://www.theafricantheatremagazine.com/koleka-putumas-no-easter-sunday-for-queers-is-powerful-and-timely/" target="_blank">No Easter Sunday for Queers</a></em> in 2019 and was sold out every night at the <a href="https://markettheatre.co.za/productions/no-easter-sunday-for-queers/" target="_blank">Market Theatre</a> in Johannesburg. <em>No Easter Sunday for Queers </em>zoned into homophobia, religion and the senseless killing of queers particularly Black lesbians. Following the success of the play, Putuma released a chilling poem titled <a href="https://www.okayafrica.com/koleka-putuma-every-three-hours-new-poem/" target="_blank">"Every three hours" </a>to bring to the fore the seriousness of femicide.</p>
