Tasneem Rossouw was born in Cape Town, South Africa, and educated at the University of Cape Town. She is concerned with semiotics: how phenomena carry meaning through their form, as well as the contexts in which they occur. Furthermore, she is concerned with applying this understanding by training the ability to consciously shape meaning-experiences in others, with attendant critical practice.
Being a graduate of the UCT Theatre and Performance programme, her primary mediums of research expression have formally been theatre and performance art. During the course of her programme at the CCA, she intends on further exploring her core research narrative through curatorial practice.
