Summary

Originally formed through an outreach program for youth during the Apartheid era, Via Katlehong’s high-energy style is an energetic brew of “Pantsula” (street dance) and “Gumboot” (rhythmic physical percussion). Through constantly searching for new performance horizons, they have become a major player on the international stage. For their triumphant return to Peak Performances, this inventive American premiere is cabaret like you’ve never experienced before. By combining the group’s powerhouse style with dynamite vocal performances of traditional folk music, a fresh and inventive look at modern South Africa is born
