ABOUT DUBLIN DANCE FESTIVAL: ROBYN ORLIN'S AND SO YOU SEE...

Robyn Orlin, controversial choreographer and societal commentator, partners with Albert Khoza, a young flamboyant performer from Soweto, in And so you see...our honourable blue sky and ever enduring sun…can only be consumed slice by slice…

 

Khoza’s exuberant presence and outrageous performance produce theatrical fireworks, as he guides the audience through the seven mortal sins to the strains of Mozart’s Requiem. Khoza, a sangoma (traditional healer) living in modern South Africa, explores questions which Orlin poses to a post-apartheid society:

 

Why can't you be gay and traditional? Why can't you be a university graduate and practise traditional African religion and medicine? Why are these conflicts seen as a betrayal rather than an opportunity to discover something new?

 

Humorous and provocative, this cheeky work challenges preconceptions while offering a glimmer of hope.
