ABOUT 'I AM RHYTHM'
A fresh, upbeat dance show that tells the story of the evolution of rhythm and dance in South Africa. Rhythm is a 16-legged dance beast that will get you stomping and clapping to the mesmerising beats of traditional and urban dances.
From tribal Tswana, warrior Zulu, to energetic Gumboot, swinging Kofifi, to urban Pantsula and Sbujwa dance styles, After Freedom Productions' show takes you on a breathtaking dance journey of the Spirit of Africa that keeps its people moving.
I Am Rhythm explores the impact of tribal and traditional cultures on modern and urban music and dance, bringing township culture to the world stage.
