Description

Old and new beats meet performance poetry paying tribute to South Africa’s legends. Experience the sounds and rhythms of the Soweto street life, with its contagious energy and invigorating vibes, through an everyman’s daily journey. The production utilises live music, dance, street footage and performance poetry to tell stories and engage audiences with traditional and modern South African cultures. Njobo Productions and African Connections CIC are returning to the Edinburgh Fringe due to popular demand. 'The cast performs continuously, fully invested in sharing their love of dance and their culture from South Africa’ (FringeReview.co.uk).

Thoroughly absorbing show with incredible energy and dynamism all the way through. The young troupe are extraordinary dancers and delightful to meet at the end. Would have loved to know some of the song themes and lyrics and be encouraged to join in as I’m sure people do at home ! Highly recommended .

Thoroughly recommend this show. Blown away by the skill and non-stop energy of the dancers, whose passion and commitment is inspiring. Find time to go and see this!
