Aura "The Poet " · Aura Kawanzaruwa (Harare, Zimbabwe)


“I write from a funny little place in my head where things only make sense on paper first then actualize on stage in a final act of literary defiance!”
-Aura ‘Regal Rebel’ Kawanzaruwa

21-year-old Harare girl, Aura, breezed into the fore of the Zim entertainment scene as a dynamic performing artist, ‘a Jackie of All Trades’. She has worked unseen on various productions since she was 10 years old as an actress, poet, dancer and singer. Add to that choreographer, visual artist and MC and you get a picture of how well rounded this young woman is. In her poetry space she has been writing since she was 12 but never thought it possible to give her poetry an ‘audio-visual’ aspect till late 2008 when she suddenly appeared on platforms like Sistaz Open Mic and Bocapa Open Mic (both projects run by Pamberi Trust at the Book Café in Harare). Her poetry is laden with clever lyrics and insightful undertones of meaning. Her topics veer off the beaten track and come, when she performs, with a sassy delivery that never fails to ignite undercurrents of excitement in her audience. Aura has performed on many a stage since including HIFA 2010, Intwasa Festival (Bulawayo), Chimanimani Arts Festival, UNIFEM Africa UNiTE Campaign against gender based violence and many other weird and wonderful stages. She dreams of taking on the world and speaking on stages too big for one person.
