Via Kanana

February 16 - March 6

February 16 March 6

DanceHouse, in partnership with Digidance, announces the North American premiere of the digital broadcast of South African dance company Via Katlehong and contemporary choreographer Gregory Maqoma’s Via Kanana, streaming in Canada. Eight dancers aim to combine the traditional, high-energy dance form of Pantsula (born out of South African protest) with tap, step and gumboot – a miners’ dance based on handstrokes on the thighs and calves – into an exhilarating exploration of the problems and promise of their homeland. The digital broadcast of Via Kanana will include a 20-minute pre-show documentary.
