Through a synthesis of ballet, contemporary and African dance, Bawren Tavaziva’s interpretation of the Carmen story is strikingly powerful, sensual and beautifully performed by six stunning dancers. The specially commissioned original sound track is composed and arranged by Fayyaz Virji of the Warriors International.

Played out through the entanglement of desire, deceit and corruption in an African township where military corruption is rife, Carmen dangerously and defiantly ignores all warnings in the perusal of a better life but tragedy follows her like a shadow in hot sun.

There will be a pre-show talk in the Theatre at 7pm and an informal discussion with the Artistic Director will take place in the first floor bar area after the show.
