HOUSE OF THE HOLY AFRO RETURNS! (Sth Africa)10/03/2009 - 21/03/2009
Get set for this genre-busting club show which beats to the multicultural pulse of 21st century Africa.
House of the Holy Afro is an audacious fusion of the urban and traditional, of gospel and house, of slam-poetry and Afro-pop into an explosive night of driving rhythms, soaring harmonies and outlandishly irreverent kitsch.
This exuberant nightclub spectacular, directed by Brett Bailey, unites South Africa's hottest acts, the internationally acclaimed performance troupe Third World Bunfight and performance poet Odidi Mfenyana for a provocative and riotous South African house party.
Expect a show like no other, where body-moving house beats merge with songs from ancient shamanistic ceremonies and the uplifting gospel of township churches. Hypnotic singing gives way to hip poetry, outrageous costumes and uninhibited, high energy dancing that will have you on your feet and shaking your stuff in full-bodied agreement.
