Live Art, Performance and Scenography
Gavin Krastin is a South African performance artist and live artist, scenographer and arts educator. He is Cape Town based and his work spans the worlds of theatre, visual arts and contemporary performance. Gavin's interests lie in the permeability and politics of the body’s representation, limitation and operation in alternative, layered spaces. His practice is inspired by his immediate South African environment and one’s positionality and transgression in the history embedded in its shifting socio-political landscape within a global-local framework.
“Gavin Krastin?has always straddled theatre and dance with work that is full of beauty, but not always easy to stomach.” – City Press
