McIntosh Jerahuni – Chirorodziva

Dance Days Chania Workshop

Jera- means to dig and huni-is firewood which artistically means molding and giving life to junk until it becomes the most meaningful piece of art. The dance technique allows you to investigate deeper about self/identity, the way you move and to gain the know-how of roots of movements. Mclntosh’s dance class introduces dance in its various forms with emphasis on the Zimbabwean identity and finding new possibilities and breaks all the limitations.

McIntosh Jerahuni (*1988) is a musician, dancer and a choreographer from Zimbabwe. He has established the Jerahuni Movement Factory with free dance classes to those interested in moving. He believes that the physical expressions give outlet to spiritual and emotional undercurrents that are entirely ignored in other dance forms.

A former dancer, choreographer and artistic director of Tumbuka Dance Company is moved by the mindset of exploring the body itself using his ‘jerahuni-technique’ without any judgement of our bodies, its abilities and disabilities’.
