THE JOURNEY (article first published : 2006-06-11)

Premiering on the Fringe of the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown, The Journey is a true story based on the life of a Pantsula dancer.

Four guys share their life experiences as dancers from the dark days of apartheid to the demise of the isiPantsula sub-culture and the commercialisation of the dance-form, its origins, developmental stages and the promotion of isiPantsula.

The production intends to educate, entertain and promote isiPantsula as a unique contemporary South African dance. The cast will act, dance and sing down memory lane. The Journey will be a high-energy roller-coaster ride that promise to wow audiences with an unimaginable form of rhythm and pure stage magic. Written and directed by Simon Phiri.

Performances will be at Kingswood Theatre.
