Weekend Watching: Dancing: Woza

In the 60s, the apartheid relocated black people in ghettos. The townships became a place of poverty, but also of encounters and the soil of a overflowing culture, the pantsula. The group Via Katlehong depicts on stage its creativity, with live music using traditional instruments and songs. The dancers modernize the gumboots (tap dancing and contemporary African dance) and offer a new dance called mogaba (keystrokes feet and clapping hands).
