‘it is not about fear, it is about strength and humanity’

Bawren Tavaziva’s new work Izindava is dynamic, bold and explores human fragility within our changing world. Beautiful yet haunting and provocative, Izindava unearths raw emotions that are unsettling and unforgettable.

Growing up amongst persecution, mob-justice and segregation, Bawren’s memories of freedom instilled a strength of spirit and resistance that has shaped this work.

Bawren’s unbridled and intricate movement synthesises ballet, contemporary and African dance styles and is performed by a cast of stunning dancers with a film-scape of street life in Harare.

Izindava translates as ‘news’ in the Zimbabwean language Ndebele.
