Dynamic, bold and risk-taking, Izindava is breath-taking to watch. Sounds, rhythms, rituals and language influence the dynamism of the choreography and the beautiful African spirit. Izindava, means ‘news’ in the Zimbabwean language ‘Shona’ and the show features a stark white stage and a film-scape of street life in Harare. Performed by a cast of stunning dancers, the company’s distinctive style synthesises ballet, contemporary and African dance and music create a
powerful and immersive experience.
