Dance Umbrella

Pulsating with rhythmic energy and groove Via Kanana stands as an expression of light and hope, defying the adversity and fear caused by corruption in a post-apartheid era.

Choreographed by South African dance legend Gregory Maqoma, the dynamic artists of Via Katlehong bring the whistling, tapping, clapping rebellion of the quick-stepping Pantsula movement to the stage. As ambassadors of the culture, a way of life for township inhabitants, they articulate the angst, joy and boundless potential of their streets.

Enriched by video and a luminous choral score, Via Kanana speaks of a promised land not yet delivered, and humanity against the odds.

Join post-show each night as the party continues with DJ Rabiah.
