Experience the riveting mastery of the incomparable dance artist Vincent Mantsoe. Presenting a mix of traditional African dance with contemporary Western street styles and martial arts, Mantsoe creates an exhilarating and passionate new language embodying control, intensity and absolute commitment.

Reflecting on  poverty-stricken squatter camps in South Africa, NTU discusses the feeling of nothingness while Skwatta says there is something happening within that nothingness. Both politically and socially charged works find hope and salvation in the human spirit. While often fragile and tortured, it is capable of great dignity and pride.
