In partnership with Digidance, Harbourfront Centre announces the North American premiere of the digital broadcast of South African dance company Via Katlehong Dance and contemporary choreographer Gregory Maqoma's Via Kanana, streaming February 16 – March 6, 2022. Pulsing with rhythmic vibrancy, eight dancers combine the traditional, high-energy dance of Pantsula (born out of South African protest) with tap, step and gumboot - a miners' dance based on handstrokes on the thighs and calves - into an exhilarating exploration of the problems and promise of their homeland. The digital broadcast of Via Kanana will include a 20-minute pre-show documentary. For tickets and information, visit: harbourfrontcentre.com
