Double Bill

Isandi Sendoda: by Mzo Gasa

This is a story about manhood, healing, masculinity and the fragilities of men that manifests in violent behaviour or unhealthy personalities in relationships because of how they were raised (socialised). The story interrogates masculinity and depression, juxtaposing the old ways of culture and the modern discourse.

Isandi Sendoda interrogates how society makes men feel weak, shameful and inadequate for having feelings of sadness, pain and disappointment.  All their lives they were told, “Real men don’t cry,” yet crying is a way for the human body to release toxins and men are human and need to release pain or it becomes toxic.

Isandi Sendoda centres on the interrogation of masculine cultural rituals that will no doubt strike one as indigenous, but they are actually universal and cut across cultures, regardless of where they are from or what their beliefs are.  Isandi Sendoda symbolises coming of age and rites of passage and interrogates the shift into manhood and what it means and feels like.

Duration: 20 Min
