WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Tavaziva's Africarmen is a sumptuous and evocative dance production loosely based on Georges Bizet's popular opera Carmen. Through a fusion of ballet, contemporary and African dance, Bawren Tavaziva's powerful choreography is performed by a cast of outstanding dancers. Played out through the entanglement of desire, deceit and corruption in a township of oil-laden Equatorial Guinea, lingering ancestral voices are at work here amongst the dreams of a better life. With a new score composed and arranged by Fayyaz Virji of the acclaimed Warriors International, Africarmen is Bawren Tavaziva's most ambitious work to date.
