Student of the month: Ndumiso Peter Ndlovu – BA (Hons) Drama

Next in our series of meeting our students we meet Ndumiso Peter known as Dee who sums up themselves with this:

Sometimes I write, other times I direct, and most times I am thinking about “who the hell are we?”.

Tell us about your time at QMUL. What have been your highlights?

I have enjoyed my time at QMUL. A few highlights have been learning about the things that would never cross your mind like the poetics of archives, and also, spaces within spaces within gallery spaces.

How has your course at Queen Mary helped you to progress into the world outside? What’s next?

The BA Drama course has equipped me with a great research foundation, and what’s next is an MA in Theatre and Performance because somebody has to think about ‘scratch’.

Aside from course content what have been your favourite elements of the experience of studying here as a whole?

QMTC. Though I never joined, I have enjoyed watching shows come together in incredibly tight circumstances.

Tell us about your life outside Queen Mary including any projects, ambitions or jobs you’ve had.

Outside of QM I have written three plays (SALT, 42 Hollow Knocks, and Communion). I have started a creative writing circle called ‘The Moon and Her Daughters. What else have I done? Oh, I have worked at a cafe the entirety of my degree. How fun! Currently working on staging one of my players at one of London’s many stages.

What could be improved to enhance future students’ experience at Queen Mary?

A de-colonialised curriculum.
