Chanje Kunda


Chanje Kunda stands gracefully, looking straight ahead with one arm raised behind her head. She wears many silver hoops around her neck and wrists.

Chanje Kunda is a poet, playwright and performance artist.

Her work explores 21st century life, and aims to use art as a tool to transform lives, shift consciousness and also bring joy to an otherwise serious and stressful modern existence.

She predominately works as a solo artist in performance, across the literary, theatrical and live art sectors. UK performance highlights include features at The Royal Albert Hall, the Southbank and the Royal Exchange, in addition to touring arts centres and festivals throughout the country . Internationally she has performed at the Calabash Literature Festival, Jamaica.

As an artist-in-residence in the Netherlands, she has performed in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Eindhoven and Groningen. She has also toured work to Zimbabwe and South Africa. Other international representation includes selection by the British Council for IETM conferences in Romania and Croatia.

In addition to her live performance work, Chanje has produced audio visual performance for digital media. During lockdown in 2020, Chanje has had creative commissions from DaDaFest International Festival, Manchester International Festival and the Imperial War Museum.
