Via Katlehong was founded at the beginning of the 1990s in a South African township and has since developed into a professional dance company. Guided by the renowned choreographer Gregory Maqoma, the group stages rebellious, angry and yet optimistic performances. The total work of art, made up of dance and film sequences, singing and political texts, denounces, above all else, the corruption that is rife throughout South Africa and basically destroying the country from within.
