UNGANISHA: Explore. Connect. Dance. (Digital Edition)

August 16 - August 31

Woezo Africa Music & Dance Theatre will be launching an online digital edition of their February 22, 2020 UNGANISHA: Explore. Connect. Dance. production from their website from August 16 to 31, 2020.

This free digital production is meant to promote intercultural understanding by illuminating the threads of African diasporic traditions throughout Western colonial expansion and its influence on the modes of these modern dance styles: Tap, Hip Hop, Step, Afro Cuban, and Afro Caribbean.

During the 45 minutes of digital experience, each dance style will be accompanied by theatrical and visual elements that provide historical and cultural insight on the challenges and contributions of Africans in the Diaspora.

The inspiration for UNGANISHA came from Woezo’s belief in the power of art to reach people at a deep emotional level and to expand cultural and historical insight and understanding. The dance theatre production aims to spotlight the diverse stories lived and told by people of the African diaspora.

Donations will be accepted in a Pay-What-You-May format and the proceeds will go towards the highly anticipated 2021 UNGANISHA showcase on February 27, 2021.
