A journey through South African history expressed by music and dance. Without using verbal communication, it relies on the universal understanding of dance and raw emotion to portray a message that would enchant especially foreign visitors to South Africa.

Loved every minute of this hour long show from the glass of wine in the auditorium before the start, enjoying the characterful old theatre surrounds, to the vibrant music and wonderful dancing performed with real verve by the mainly young troupe. Musicians were great, the singer great ! loved the range of dancing from the traditional to the miners' gum boot dances and township jives.great value for money.

This is a great little show to watch. We found a flyer for the show down at V&W Waterfront and seeing as the theatre was just around the corner from our hotel we decided to go. All dancers had exceptional energy and gave a very lively performance - I was clapping along for most of the show with a smile on my face, enjoying every minute. Definitely a fun performance to go and see particularly if you're a tourist.
