‘it is not about fear, it is about strength and humanity’
Bawren Tavaziva’s new work is a bold and universal message about human fragility within our changing world.
Beautiful, haunting and provocative, IZINDAVA unearths raw emotions that are unsettling and unforgettable. Extraordinary sculptural costumes extend and abstract Bawren’s choreography with astonishing results.
A very personal piece about traumatic religious childhood fears, IZINDAVA also focusses on the redemptive power of dance, music and Rastafarianism.
Tavaziva’s unique style that seamlessly synthesises ballet, contemporary and African dance is performed by a cast of stunning dancers.
Izindava translates as ‘news’ in the Zimbabwean language Ndebele.
‘Tavaziva’s facility for devising hot, liquid motion is indisputable’ The Times
