Choreographer Barwen Tavaziva’s work is beautiful and provocative. IZINDAVA is a powerful journey back to a fractured Zimbabwe of his youth, combining contemporary and traditional African dance and music.

‘It is not about fear; it is about strength and humanity’
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.

Tavaziva’s unique style that seamlessly synthesises ballet, contemporary and African dance is performed by a cast of stunning dancers.

“The dancers are DYNAMITE”. The Guardian, Africarmen

“Tavaziva’s facility for devising hot, liquid motion is indisputable… His seven strong cast is sharp, swift and superbly fit” The Times, Africarmen
