‘An offering of transcendent power.’
Dance and music in a ritual embrace.
Leading South African choreographer and gifted dancer Gregory Maqoma pays homage to his ancestry in this celebration of spirit and resilience. Embodying the forgotten history of a revered Xhosa warrior chief, Maqoma performs a transformational solo that combines traditional African and contemporary dance.
The divine harmonies and lamentations of the Vuyani Ensemble – with guitarist Giuliano Modarelli – weave through Maqoma’s vibrant kinetic world to bring this story of race, politics, cultural tradition and personal legacy to life.
