Buhle Ngaba

Buhle Ngaba is a multi-award winning South African actor, writer, and speaker. Her research and performance interests include developing new thought processes around the role of storytelling and creativity in unearthing and amplifying African women’s voices from the archive; to inspire new narratives and push the boundaries of performance.
Currently, she is researching and curating “The Southern Women’s Archive” ; an extensive collection of photos, personal letters, journals, books, essays, manuscripts, internal correspondence and minutes of women’s meetings from across the world inherited from her great-aunt Ruth Mompati; one of the first woman soldiers of Umkhonto WeSizwe and founding member of the Federation of South African Women established in 1954. This archive not only holds personal significance, but also speaks to who and what is remembered in the South African consciousness globally.
