Lebo Mashile and Guy Buttery: an experiment

What happens when we put a poet and musician who hardly know each other get together?

This conversation shows us the outcome of a month-long experiment where two artists got to know each other and their respective artforms. More than that, Buttery, an acclaimed musician, and Mashile, a renowned and celebrated poet, explored each other’s minds, souls, politics and what makes them tick as human-beings


In this conversation, Mashile and Buttery will reflect on the experiment. We will find out if the experiment inspired them in any way. Did it spark off threads for potential collaboration? Were there moments in the discovering of one another that they were shocked by each other views? Did they find solidarity on certain subjects?
