Event Description

Established in 1999 by choreographer Gregory Maqoma, Vuyani Dance Theater (VDT) is a project based company that produces works that combine in a dynamic and theatrical way the many cultures, backgrounds and tastes that enrich South Africa. In Beautiful Me, Maqoma attempts to define, redefine and profess his own identity in relationship to history, humanity and nature, and uses the influences of three master choreographers Akram Khan, Faustin Linyekula and Vincent Mantsoe and their styles to shape the work as they have helped shape him as an artist. Through layering these distinct and diverse styles with his own unique lightness and humor, this piece becomes a living self-portrait and a provocative exploration of kinetic African identity. Accompanied on stage by four exceptional South African musicians (violin, cello, sitar and percussion), simple lighting and set design, Beautiful Me speaks honestly and directly about the process of finding one’s authentic voice.
