Event InfoTicketsVenueShare on Facebook Share on Twitter

Two leading voices in contemporary dance in Africa, South African Boyzie Cekwana and Mozambican Panaibra Canda, collaborate to create a haunting and powerfully physical examination of post-colonial Africa. In 1984, Mozambique and the South African apartheid state signed the Nkomati accord, a non-aggression pact.

The Inkomati (dis)cord refers to this failed agreement, and the river that lent its name to it. Using their own bodies, identities, and histories, the dancers explore the internalized colonial boundaries that still alienate shared histories and aspirations.
