About

In this moving dance production, Bawren Tavaziva’s discoveries are a universal comment on Africa and who we are today.

From a little house hidden behind the white master’s mansion, a young man struggles to comprehend where we are now… and why?

Monarchies, political persecution, slavery and modern colonialism create a rich source of untold truths. Exploring the use of motion-capture technology, Boy’s Khaya creates an immersive and unforgettable experience.

Tavaziva’s facility for devising hot, liquid motion is indisputable – The Times

Created by the renowned contemporary African choreographer and musician Bawren Tavaziva, Boy’s Khaya is a thrilling, moving and unforgettable audience experience.
