Gregory Maqoma (Vuyani Dance Theatre)

In OUT OF JOINT, Gregory Maqoma and Helge Letonja question the threatening shifts of global social and power balances. The dance sextet combines their initially independently developed choreographic strands to a stirring, transcultural piece of multilingual aesthetics and vehement expression. '' We need to be brave. To trust the other is to trust ourselves.'' With this conviction, the internationally renowned artists explore current realities that stagger between emerging populism and extremism, diffuse fears and unchained capitalism. Under impulsive sound thunderstorms of composer Serge Weber, the turmoil of “disjointed” individual and social bodies turn into dance, and a human outcry breaks its way. The captivating outcome tours successfully since 2017. Dancers: Kossi Sebastien Aholou-Wokawui, Thulisile Binda, Oh Chang Ik, Steven Chauke, Mariko Koh, Phumlani Life Mndebele
