“The Most Badass Performance We’ve Seen This Year” OKAYAFRICA
OKZHARP is a musician/producer and dj based in South London, UK but originally from Cape Town, South Africa. Former member of cult project LV (Hyperdub). MANTHE RIBANE is a Soweto-born performance wunderkind who has been making a name for herself across the creative spectrum, working in film, music, dance and performance art. Chris Saunders aka Sondeza is a South African photographer from Johannesburg, as well as a short film and video director. Together they release an amazing live audio/visual set incorporating sound, film and performance. Okzharp reworks musical elements from the film and combines it with new material while Sondeza recuts live audio-reactive visuals, remixing elements from the film with new footage captured on the day of the performance in the local area. Manthe Ribane uses her characters in the film ‘Ghost Diamond’ as a starting point for her vocal and dance performance. The content is always evolving, it’s never the same twice.
