Moving into Dance Mophatong presents THREADS

Sylvia “Magogo” Glasser and Lebo Mashile’s creation, threads will be presented at the State Theatre. The poetry is created by Lebo Mashile, with performers being Lebo Mashile, Muzi Shili, Faith Maseko, Thabo Rapoo, Thulane Chauke, Thandi Tshabalala, Itumeleng Hlapane and Thembakile Setiabi.

Threads is a cross cultural and cross generational artistic collaboration between legendary choreographer and cultural activist Sylvia 'Magogo' Glasser and Lego Mashile, one of South Africa's celebrated young literary voices. Threads deals with the gender relationships, cultural and artistic identity. Created by MIDM's 30th anniversary, this work can be thought of as a verbal dance or a physical poem. Mashile created new poems for this collaboration, and three appear in her latest publication Flying above the Sky.

16.00 - 17.00 - Amount of Tears by Kenneth Mlambo and directed by Tlhapang Petso.

Amount of Tears tells a story of young girl who runs away from the killers of her parents, and finds herself in another village. Here she falls in love with the Prince and encounters even more problems. The Prince's sister is of the opinion that she is not good enough for him and the sister to the King has her own ideas of who the Prince should marry.
