by Katleho Kano Shoro
Johannesburg performance-poet Katleho Kano Shoro puts her stage presence into print with this metapoetic debut collection that captures the cadences of her fearless voice, her unassuming sense of humour, and her enthusiasm for an Afrocentric literary culture.
She reflects on creativity, on the writing, reading and performance of poetry, exploring the language that structures it, the forces that inspire it and the transformation that follows our experience of it. From there her words wander through personal relationships and politics, articulating ideas about masculinity, sexuality, blackness, colonialism and our connections to those we love.
Crafted with both the spoken and written word in mind,̴Ì_Serurubele̴Ì_invites you not only to read poetry but to voice it, to taste the language as it flows from your tongue, feel its rhythms and hear its rhyme.
