Gregory Maqoma's Vuyani Dance Theatre
South Africa’s Vuyani Dance Theatre debuts with a powerful musical dance theater work, “Cion: Requiem of Ravel’s Boléro.”
The music of Ravel’s Bolero is scored for South African a cappella voices in this dramatic, ultimately uplifting, theatrical-dance work with live music. Drawing inspiration South African author Zakes Mda’s novels Cion and Ways of Dying, the character Toloki moves through a hauntingly beautiful exploration of grief, struggle and relief—a requiem that awakens connection to the departed souls.
