Choreographed and performed by Mamela Nyamza
The clarity and fluidity of her evocative choreography is truly inspired.
The press relaease describes this programme as "a dance experience portraying <<critically-acclaimed Mamela Nyamza's life story>>".
And as she navigates her way through this personal journey, she highlights the challenging social issues that have confronted her - such as custom, tradition, marriage, motherhood and sexual identity.
It is the story of a modern-day Xhosa woman who refuses societal suppression and chooses to follow her heart instead. Her final discovery of a fulfilling love relationship with another woman (portrayed by Ananda Fuchs) provides a fitting climax of positive hopefulness.
