The company Via Katlehong presents an energetic hip-hop piece in two parts, choreographed by two talents: the Franco-Senegalese Amala Dianor and the Portuguese Marco da Silva Ferreira.

At the center of their virtuoso stage language are the pantsula, a popular urban dance from the townships, and the gumboot, an African style of percussion in rubber boots. This mix of hammering and precision gets under your skin, astounds, knocks you out and sweeps you away. Great art, born of the need to eradicate misery and the inextinguishable need to live beyond all oppression.

Which shoes are we wearing? What glasses do we wear when watching a dance performance? In this open exchange, Ramona Unterberg offers space for thoughts and questions about looking critically at racism.
