In this conversation, Magogodi centers Mutwa’s curatorship of theatrical prowess. And as the telepathic journey progresses aboard the mothership that surfs the Mutwa universe, writer and visual poet, Tseliso Monaheng recalls a trip to Kuruman were he was met by Credo Mutwa’s gargantuan zest to breath life into his sculptures.
