Mamela Nyamza et les Kids de Soweto
Choreography: Mamela Nyamza and Thomas Bongani Gumede
With Mamela Nyamza et les danseurs du Soweto’s Finest Thomas Bongani Gumede, Neo Chokoe, Thabang Hendrick Mabileta, Njabulo Mahlaba, Kagiso Mashiane
Mamela Nyamza collaborates with the Soweto’s Finest troupe to perform “Ishbuja” – a dance drawing from African traditions and hip hop culture and reflecting the hopes and hardships of South African youth. Like a totem, Nyamza’s body becomes a site of desire, repulsion and fascination, as the dance evokes gender and social disparities.
