Ms Nomcebisi Moyikwa


Nomcebisi Moyikwa started her dance and theatre work right here in Grahamstown.

She is now a teaching/artist, an interdisciplinary choreographer and a researcher. She is currently studying for her Masters in Drama at Rhodes University specialising in choreography. She is also an Arts Administrator for First Physical Theatre Company; she started with First Physical a number of years ago as part of the First Physical Youth Company. Nomcebisi is a founder of Unknown Assets, a project supported by the Creative City project (EU).

In 2013 she made her first forays into choreography within a professional setting. The outcome was a solo work, A letter to, which was her response to her aunt’s death and a dark theatricalization of sexual violence and rape in South Africa. In 2014 she choreographed Caught which was performed at Detours Festival 2014 (Johannesburg), GIPCA Live Arts 2014 (Cape Town) and Jomba Contemporary Dance Festival 2014 (Durban).  Caught was also performed at the Bayimba International Festival 2015 (Uganda). In 2015 she received two Ovation Awards at the National Arts Festival for her productions of Inqindi and Waltz.

From 2013 Nomcebisi has worked in the RU Drama Department teaching Movement Studies, Somatics and Physical Theatre.
