Tavaziva Dance
present Africarmen

Tavaziva’s Africarmen is a sumptuous and evocative dance production loosely based on Bizet’s popular opera Carmen.

Through a synthesis of ballet, contemporary and African dance, Bawren Tavaziva’s powerful choreography is performed by a cast of outstanding dancers.

Played out through the entanglement of desire, deceit and corruption in a township of oil-laden Equatorial Guinea, lingering ancestral voices are at work here, amongst the dreams of a better life.

With a new score composed and arranged by Fayyaz Virji of the acclaimed Warriors International, AfriCarmen is Bawren Tavaziva’s most ambitious work to date.
