In Today’s #OFMArtBeat Mid-Morning Magic’s Yolanda Maartens chats to Moeketsi Koena, arts practitioner and director of Itrotra Art X Connection about his project titled Toro-Tshoho.

Moeketsi, in collaboration with visual artist and music painter Nico Phooko created a multi-disciplinary performance that interrogates the spirituality and connectivity of the artists and their audiences with their ancestry; juxtaposing this with their earthly journeys as they walk and toil daily.


This project formed part of the 2022 Goethe Project Space (GPS) programme where each artist walked away with a R70 000 grant. 

The GPS programme is a multi-disciplinary roving project space. The programme supports work realised all over South Africa ranging from workshops to exhibitions, events and performances; including visual art, literature, film, music, dance and theatre projects.
