“BLOODLINES”: An evocative dance theatre work that conjures images around history, remembering travels from rural KwaZulu-Natal, to colonial memories of Boer Wars and the South Durban concentration camps that held Boer women and Children between 1899 and 1902, to modern day acts of xenophobia and the invocation “who started what?”. Choreography by Lliane Loots, with the original spoken word by Iain ewok Robinson. Bloodlines features Pamela Van Deutekom from INTRODANS, the Netherlands.
The presentation of this work was made possible by the Kingdom of the Netherlands
